The power to choose : Bangladeshi women and labour market decisions in London and Dhaka by Naila Kabeer( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Naila Kebeer examines the lives of Bangladeshi garment workers to shed light on the question of what constitutes 'fair' competition in international trade. While Bangladesh is generally considered a poor, conservative Muslim country, with a long tradition of female seclusion, women here have entered factories to take their place as a prominent, first-generation, industrial labour force. In Britain, on the other hand, a supposedly modern and secular society with a long tradition of female employment, Bangladeshi women are largely concentrated in home-based piecework for the garment industry."--Jacket

Organizing women workers in the informal economy : beyond the weapons of the weak by Naila Kabeer( Book )

18 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Organizing Women Workers in the Informal Economy explores the emergence of an alternative repertoire among women working in the growing informal sectors of the global South: the weapons of organization and mobilization. This crucial book offers vibrant accounts of how women working on farms, as sex workers, maids, and waste pickers, in fisheries and factories, have come together to carve out new identities for themselves, define what matters to them, and develop collective strategies of resistence and struggle
Mainstreaming gender in social protection for the informal economy by Naila Kabeer( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book will enhance understanding of the constraints and barriers that confine women to more poorly remunerated, more casual and more insecure forms of waged and self-employment, and of what this implies for women's ability to provide for their families and cope with insecurity. Kabeer develops a framework of analysis that integrates gender, life course and livelihoods perspectives in order to explore the interactions between gender inequality, household poverty and labour market forces that help to produce gender-differentiated experiences of risk and vulnerability for the working poor. She then examines and assesses examples of social protection measures in order to illustrate the necessity for a gender-analytical approach. She also stresses the importance of an organised voice for vulnerable and marginalised workers."--Jacket

Social protection as development policy : Asian perspectives by Sarah Cook( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concerned that in the pre-2008 growth scenario, there was a danger that the lessons of the Asian crisis of the late 1990s would be forgotten, this volume underscores the need for policy makers to see social protection not only as a response to risk and crisis, but to integrate it into the mainstream development agenda in order to create trajectories out of poverty and vulnerability. Significantly, taking into account both deeply entrenched forms of poverty and social exclusion as well as new forms of vulnerability being created in the process of rapid growth and globalisation, it also cautions against a one-size-fits-all approach to social protection. --Book Jacket

Women's control over economic resources and access to financial resources, including microfinance : 2009 world survey on the role of women in development by United Nations( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ensuring women's economic empowerment and access to and control over resources requires an integrated approach to growth and development, focused on gender-responsive employment promotion and informed by the interdependency between economic and social development. Social objectives need to be incorporated into economic policies. Economic growth strategies should give attention to the real economy and focus on creating a gender-sensitive macroeconomic environment, full employment and decent work, access to land, property and other productive resources as well as financial services, and full coverage of social protection measures. The survey outlines a number of concrete recommendations in these critical areas, which if adopted, will facilitate women's equitable access to and control over economic and financial resources.--Publisher's description
