Globalization, Democracy and Gender Justice
Edited by: M. R. Biju
Globalization is widely seen as the most important factor that can influence national economies around the world. Globalization has also resulted in the creation of a new business framework. More changes can be expected in the business scenario, specifically in terms of openness, adaptiveness, and responsiveness. However, with the growing globalization and liberalization of an economy, as well as the increased privatization of services, women as a whole have been left behind. In India, the mainstreaming of women into the new and emerging areas of growth is necessary. This will require their training and the upgrade of skills in emerging trades, encouraging them to take up vocational training and employment in the boom sectors. This also requires women to migrate to metropolitan areas for work. Hence, the provision of safe housing and other gender-friendly facilities at work need to be provided. This collection of research papers by renowned academics in India embodies a critical analysis of various aspects of the core issues under investigation.
