"In [this book, the author] develops a feminist political economy approach to identify the linkage between different forms of violence against women and macro structural processes in strategic local and global sites - from the household to the transnational level. These sites include economic restructuring and men's lack of secure employment, the abusive exploitation of transnational female workers, the growing sex market in free trade zones, the spike in violence against women amidst financial liberalization and crises, sexual violence in armed conflict and post-crisis peacebuilding, and the deleterious gendered impacts of natural disasters. Examples are drawn from South Africa, Kenya, the Democratic Republic of Congo, China, Ciudad Juarez in Mexico, the Pacific Islands, Argentina, Eastern Europe, Central Asia, Haiti, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, New Zealand, Ireland, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Iceland."
