Abstract:The author interrogates, from a critical feminist perspective, the notion of economic globalization, the key features that shape some of its processes and the multiple and differentiated impacts these have on women, particularly poor women. Moreover, she questions the role and influence of institutions of economic global governance alongside the role of national States in the process. While globalization offers more opportunities for some, it also reinforces existing patterns of exclusion, deepens poverty, increases social inequality and creates new social problems for others. The question is whether governments of the South have the capacity to manage integration into the global economy in ways that can benefit the poorest. Evidence in South Africa and elsewhere points to these crises becoming deeper and affecting more women. Bibliogr., notes, ref. [ASC Leiden abstract]
