About this product
- DescriptionTheories of gender justice in the twenty-first century must engage with global ecomic and social processes. Using concepts from ecomic analysis associated with global commodity chains and feminist ethics of care, Ann Stewart considers the way in which 'gender contracts' relating to work and care contribute to gender inequalities worldwide. She explores how ecomies in the global rth stimulate desires and create deficits in care and belonging which are met through transnational movements and traces the way in which transnational ecomic processes, discourses of rights and care create relationships between global south and rth. African women produce fruit and flowers for European consumption; body workers migrate to meet deficits in 'affect' through provision of care and sex; British-Asian families seek belonging through transnational marriages.
