Women Reinventing Globalisation
The Association for Women's Rights in Development's (formerly AWID) International Forum is the largest international summit on gender equality outside of the United Nations system. It provides an unparalleled opportunity to develop strategies, share ideas, build skills, and provide support - all to advance gender equality and social justice. At the 2002 Forum in Guadelajara, Mexico, hundreds of leaders, scholars and practitioners considered the economic, political, social, ecological and cultural implications of globalisation. They set out to strategise for viable alternatives to its current unsustainable, undemocratic, and exploitative forms.Contributors to this volume analyse current approaches to economic and political change and propose ways of ensuring that their ideas are translated into concrete actions in the years to come. The aim is to re-politicise the gender and development community and examine work that transforms rather than reacts. This volume provides a solutions-oriented approach to profound global changes and their effects on the lives of women. It looks at globalisation through women's eyes, engages in thought-provoking debates, and finds energising ideas.
