Recommended for: people who own stuff 'made in mexico,' anti-globalization activists/researchers
Read in October, 2007

An extended pamphlet from the 1980's that broke ground in research on women's participation in export-processing factories throughout the global south. This book covers a lot of informational ground, but isn't heavy on theoretical musings, making it a slim and quick read.

There is definitely enough research presented for this book to have been a fuller project, which would have been nice, but it is useful for informational purposes. An eye-opening read for people who don't think about where all their crap comes from, I'm sure.
