This up-to-date text offers a clear and cogent introduction to women in development. Exploring the global structures and processes that impede or support the empowerment of women, Jana Everett and Sue Ellen M. Charlton use a feminist lens to understand contemporary gender roles. Without such a lens, they argue, our understanding of globalization and development is incomplete, resulting in flawed policies that fail to improve the lives of millions of people around the globe. After a set of introductory chapters that conceptually frame the issues, the authors then investigate women's struggles within and against globalization and development through powerful case studies of sex trafficking, water, work, and health. These chapters, by using specific examples, develop the concepts of structure and agency, levels of analysis, and feminist approaches as tools to help students understand the complexities of development and alternative strategies.

Through rich interdisciplinary analysis, Everett and Charlton explore the individual and collective strategies women have used to improve their lives under globalization and weigh how effective they have been. Their book will be an essential resource in women's studies, political science, political economy, anthropology, sociology, and development studies.

Jana Everett

Jana Everett is professor of political science at the University of Colorado Denver. Sue Ellen M. Charlton is professor emerita of political science at Colorado State University.


Everett and Charlton, pioneering feminist scholars of international development and comparative politics, provide a dynamic, accessible analysis of the mixed blessings for women of neoliberal globalization-that is, the capitalist marketplace operating within and across spaces of limited governmental regulation. Their writing is conceptually sound, clear, and accessible, with case studies on work, water, health, and human trafficking. While attentive to the big picture of institutions and public policies at national and international levels, Everett and Charlton highlight women's agency in struggles to make a better and fairer world. -- Kathleen Staudt, The University of Texas at El Paso
