Women in Action 2:2005 MARKET FUNDAMENTALISM

On the cover: The glaring irony of today’s globalised world stares us everyday. A McDonald’s sign towering shabby shanties at the very heart of the metropolis. A Coca-Cola sign hanging over the local neighborhood store even in the most far-flung rural area. The landscape in most urban centres in the global South has been transformed into an everyday advertisement for the products of companies of the global North. The starking image of life that most people have now grown accustomed to—made to believe that this is how things are and should be—is a life devoted to money. We ask, “What is fundamental to life in today’s world?” The answer appears to be, “the market.”

Cover Art: Jim Marpa

Women In Action covers a broad range of issues affecting women globally, but focusing on the particular needs and concerns of women in the Global South, and forwarding a progressive perspective tempered by the experiences of the third world women's movements.
