Description for Bookstore

Main Description
Cape Verdean Women and Globalization explores how globalization affects women in Cape Verde in the twenty-first century. The authors investigate the economic and personal difficulties they face, including poverty, managing single mother-headed households, and violence. They also examine the ways women resist the challenges of globalization, not only in the form of organized political dissent, but also as an aspect of everyday life, especially the expression of culture in batuku dancing and Creole language. Using the framework of Patricia Hill Collins intersectionality theory, and the insights of Amilcar Cabral and Chandra Mohanty, Carter and Aulette conclude that scholars need to look closely at the links among oppression, resistance, culture, and gender in order to "see" the lives of women and especially in order to identify the bridges to political change.
