WHO IS THIS FOR? This study will be useful for study circles, labour educators, union leaders and researchers particularly concerned with women and work.
Women’s ILO explores issues such as equal pay, home-based labour and social welfare internationally and in places such as Argentina, Italy and Ghana. It scrutinises the impact of both geopolitical relations and transnational feminisms on the making of global labour policies in a world shaped by colonialism, the Cold War and post-colonial inequality. It further charts the disparate advancement of gender equity, highlighting the significant role of women experts and activists in the process.
