This collection of revealing articles shows the reality of globalisation as it is experienced by women workers at the bottom of society throughout the world. An underlying theme shared by all the contributions is that prevailing feminist theory has failed to recognise the key issues of class, nation, and locality at the heart of the world-wide exploitation of women. It is only through opposition within these areas that women's collective agency will produce substantial and enduring changes.
