Gender, Development, and Globalization: Economics As If All People Mattered (Routledge, 2003). Development has been a central objective for international organizations for several decades. There is an underside—and a human side—to development, and feminism has made inroads into the technical and policy debates by examining what the past and even the future holds for the people who live it. Benería highlights the ways in which feminist analysis has contributed to a richer understanding of international development and globalization. Combining theoretical, empirical, and political perspectives, the book discusses cutting-edge debates on development, globalization, economic restructuring, and feminist economics. Hailed as a “wonderfully interesting book … that enlightens both the fields as well as the challenges of globalization in the contemporary world” (Amartya Sen), Benería presents the definitive primer on global feminist economics.
