Summary
"In Denial and Distress the authors analyse the gender-differentiated impact of globalisation on women and men in the various parts of Asia and the Commonwealth of Independent States. They provide empirical evidence that not only is the incidence of poverty increasingly more severe among women than men, but that the dimensions of women's poverty and the causes or process of their poverty are different from those of poor men." "This book will be useful for government and NGO policy makers, planners, researchers and students working on development issues in Asia."--BOOK JACKET
