A unique collection by leading scholars that explores the interplay of gender and globalization through an intersectional and postcolonial lens.


Gendering Globalization, Globalizing Gender examines crucial questions, issues, and cases related to gender on a global scale. Drawing on an intersectional, postcolonial framework, the text exposes students to a variety of perspectives on how globalization has affected gender issues, and conversely how gender has informed global issues.


  • The first and only text of its kind available, offering students a critical examination of gender and globalization rooted in an intersectional, postcolonial feminist framework.
  • Expert contributors-including leading scholars, activists, and poets from Canada, the US, and around the world-provide students with an authoritative introduction to key issues in gender and globalization.
  • Comprehensive topic coverage-examining issues of environmental justice, Indigenous feminism, historical and contemporary colonial policies, health and wellness, and more-reflects the breadth of the global gender studies field.
  • Call to Action boxes invite students to proactively respond to global issues highlighted in the text and provide suggestions on how to get involved, including names of organizations and events to engage with and ways to bring attention to issues.
  • Student-friendly pedagogy includes learning objectives, discussion questions, and annotated lists of readings and multimedia, as well as Part Introductions and Tying it Together sections that help contextualize chapters within the larger themes of the book.
