In this comprehensive overview, Mary E. Hawkesworth explores transnational feminist efforts to produce a more just global order. Arguing that globalization is a feminist issue, she considers how social, economic, and political inequalities between men and women of different races, classes, ethnicities, and nationalities have been produced and contested over the past two centuries of capitalist development. The author demonstrates how women have forged international networks and alliances to address specific gender issues beyond the borders of the nation-state. By providing critical new insights into the gendered nature of the global system and the gendered dynamics of international institutions and nation states, this work will be invaluable for all those engaged in the interdisciplinary fields of globalization studies and feminist studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Globalization involves a politics of feminization: rendering females and males subservient to market imperatives and subject to devalorization of their bodies, labor, and skills. How have and might feminists respond to continuity and change in devaluing that which is `feminized'? Hawkesworth deftly guides us through this expansive terrain. Comprehensive yet cogent, critical but not daunting, this is a must-read for all who wonder about globalizations and feminisms: past, present, and future. -- V. Spike Peterson, University of Arizona
Hawkesworth offers a rich review of international feminist activism since the 19th century. . . . Recommended. * CHOICE *
This rich and engaging volume will change your view of globalization forever. A powerful study of the women's movement, making links across history and theory in a fresh and always accessible style. -- Gillian Youngs, author of International Relations in a Global Age
