"The last decade has seen an explosion of work on global justice.
But most of it has neglected the gendered aspects of many pressing
transnational moral problems. This volume is a welcome correction
and should be taken seriously by anyone concerned to understand and
to help correct the severe injustices that continue to oppress so
many people around the world."
Thomas Pogge, Yale University
"This outstanding collection of new philosophical essays conceives the gendered dimensions of global justice to include not only domestic work and sexual violence but also such issues as migrant workers, mental health, and taxation. I highly recommend it for any upper-level course or seminar on global justice and human rights."
Claudia Card, University of Wisconsin
"This book marks an important contribution both to feminism and to the philosophy of global justice. There has been a tendency to neglect, in theory and in practice, gendered dimensions of serious transnational wrongs and challenges. These authors reckon with global dynamics of gender on issues including poverty, labor migration, war and violence, the experience of violation, and mental health. A compelling and corrective volume."
