Gendered Inequalities in Asia: Configuring, Contesting and Recognizing Women and Men
- About the Book
Global processes with flows in money, commodities, and people have made it increasingly varied and blurred what it means to be a female or male in Asia today. Socio-economic and cultural patterns in Asia intersect with one another and, in doing so, they translate into power relations that create both possibilities and constraints for women and men. By focusing on unequal access to political and religious power, occupation, and health facilities, as well as different options when it comes to family life and sexuality, the recognition of women and men is explored in this volume as manifestations of ideas about femininity and masculinity.
