Global Gender Issues in the New Millennium introduces students to the gendered divisions of world politics today and reveals the power of gender as a meta-lens that keeps gender, race, class, sexual, and national divisions in place, despite limited advances of some women and men on the world political stage. In this completely new edition, the authors apply intersectional analysis to global governance, militarization, global economic restructuring, and environmental degradation. The authors focus on an apparent contradiction-the higher level of attention to gender and women's human rights in a time of fierce militarization, economic inequality, and ecological crisis-and address how the power of gender can be deconstructed to rethink gendered identities, ideologies, structures, and policies. The book emphasizes how using gender to justify or mystify unjust global practices can co-opt hard-won attention to gender equality but also sees promise in struggles to re-radicalize feminist world political demands to improve the conditions of all people and the planet. It also examines the challenges of de-gendering world politics through renewed politics of representation and redistribution. Book jacket.
