Abstract:Liepollo Pheko argues that gender perspective on the economic globalization and migration is important because it exposes the contradictory processes that are at work within a globalized economy. She suggests that despite the fact that women are taking a major part in globalized networks of production, they have not necessarily benefited from this engagement. For her the notion of citizenship is critical because it operates simultaneously as a force for inclusion and exclusion.
