about

Until now, there has been little coordinated research on the role of women in the economics of developing countries, or on the impact of the international economy on women in those countries. Here, Susan Joekes not only examines women who are engaged in what is defined as gainful, or wageearning employment, she also considers the role of women in unpaid labor such as household work, farm work on their own land, and other activities that require managing resources. Specially commissioned by the United Nations International Research and Training Institute for the Advancement of Women(INSTRAW), this study examines such topics as trade and finance, technological change, agriculture, industry, services, and emerging trends in the international economy as related to women, and concludes with proposals for innovative development policies.

Editorial Reviews

"This book presents a good look at the problem of the role of women in the economies of developing countries and should be eye-opening for many students." --Dr. Robert W. Langran, Villanova University
