Oxford University Press

This chapter takes up the perspective of poor women in two-thirds of the world, out of the conviction that we will not understand prosperity without addressing the ethics and economics of poverty. It explores the global gender gap and the effects of economic policies on women. It describes the approach of ecofeminism in the work of Ivone Gerbara and examines some existing programs of solidarity and empowerment. It evaluates the situation of Latin American women working in maquilas with help of ecofeminist analysis and the work of Amartya Sen.

Keywords:   poor women, poverty, ecofeminism, gender gap
