Examines the impact of economic globalization on the income security of women. Argues that economic restructuring has intensified inequalities based on race, gender, and class, as well as devastated national economies, leading to increased unemployment, dismantling of social programs, erosion of democratic structures, and the violation of human rights. Calls for women's organizations to work toward a world that is based on greater economic and social justice, equality, and an end to women's poverty.
