Abstract / Summary
This wide-ranging and compelling volume explores the mutually shaping relationship between globalization and gender oppression and considers the implications for social work. Delving into such timely issues as human trafficking, self-image among Black teenagers, and immigration, the authors suggest ways to prepare social workers to engage in critical thought and action that will inform and transform practice. Not intended to provide direct answers to questions about gender-based oppression, the book instead uses lived experiences to illustrate the complexity of gender-based oppression in the global context. It will help students grapple with the social constructions of gender and power by providing empirical research and reflexive essays that challenge them to ask the “why” and “how” questions about the conditions that promote gender-based oppression and to suggest strategies that might be used to address them."Taken as a whole, this collection is polished, well-organized, literate, and destined to be a major contribution to the literature." – Katherine van Wormer, University of Northern Iowa
