The Economic Cooptation and Betrayal of Feminism

This presentation will trace ways the global market impacts feminist efforts to stabilize and further women's labor contributions. Using Eisenstein's Feminism Seduced (2009), this presentation explores how global markets co-opt feminisms and consumer capital. Research conclusions consider: how can we fashion a feminist policy analysis of what is happening in the global economy? and, to what extent do current aid and rebuilding efforts reproduce unequal economic and social relations of power within and between nations??
