This involves interrogating the different locations where women have worked in the productive paid economy as well as their less visible labour in the family and the care economy.Much of the public perception, particularly in the global North has centred on women s work in the export processing factories of developing countries which produced consumer goods for Northern markets the so called nimble fingered women of the new international division of labour.

But these industries only employ a fraction of the burgeoning female labour force- the majority of working women in the global economy are located in the so called informal economy, which includes a range of activities usually categorised as self employment rather than wage labour.Ruth Pearson takes a feminist economics approach to the different kinds of gendered labour in contemporary economies and demonstrate how the gendering of both paid and unpaid work, including care work in changing demographic contexts is transforming the labour market in both developed and developing economies.
