Ashgate, 2004 - 202 halaman
Studying the impact of gender relations on the operations of multinational firms, this book focuses on the production of gendered workplace relations through company recruitment practices. Through this analysis, the author critiques the notion of the 'progressive firm' that has dominated liberal writings on economic globalization. Juanita Elias develops a theoretical challenge to mainstream liberal writings on the multinational firm, questioning the neo-liberal orthodoxy, in particular the belief that the market, as a separate sphere from society, acts to undermine 'backward' social practices and ideas. An analysis of case study material from a garment sector firm operating in Malaysia reveals how the construction of gendered workplace relations takes place at the intersections between global firms, local societies and state-led economic development strategies that have depended upon a supply of low cost female labour. Drawing upon theoretical insights from both feminist economists and economic sociologists, the book demonstrates that social inequalities are integral to the way in which markets operate.
