Gender and the Politics of Possibilities explores the lesser-known side of globalization beyond the effects of national governments and multinational corporations by taking a look at grassroots movements by women that have and continue to shape globalization today. Manisha Desai highlights the significant role that women play in cross-border trade in Africa, in transborder activism on issues that affect women, and in cultural change and social justice.
