Patriarchy and Development

In Third World countries, the involvement of females in the workforce plays no small part in the development of export manufacturing industries. Although there have already been earlier analyses regarding industrialization and how women have participated in work opportunities in industrialized settings, there is also a need to extend such an analysis beyond the notion of factory employment since women's work may be analyzed over a multitude of various experiences. This chapter attempts to examine the relations between productive and reproductive work that women are involved in and the gendering of the workforce, the patterns of global industrialization that are being modified over time, and other such issues regarding gender relations. Generally, the chapter attempts to examine how gender is associated with capital accumulation.

Keywords:   Third World countries, women employment, export manufacturing industries, global industrialization, capital accumulation, gender relations, gendering of workforce
