Women Workers in Industrialising Asia

Costed, Not Valued

  • Amarjit Kaur

Part of the Studies in the Economies of East and Southeast Asia book series (SEESEA)

About this book


This collection contributes to key theoretical debates about women workers in Asia and breaks new ground by focussing on issues that have been little documented in other studies in the area. It provides new information and insights into labour systems associated with labour intensive export manufactures and state-labour relations in a comparative context. The contributors present a range of unique and varied perspectives from which they consider aspects of the increasing integration of Asian economies, exploring implications for their labour markets.
