Using the sociological imagination to explore gender relations throughout the world, Gendered Worlds looks at how concrete forms of gender, race, class, and sexual inequality operate transnationally; examines the impact of globalization on local and everyday life experiences; and identifies how local actors re-imagine social possibilities, resist injustice, and work toward change.

The Millennium Declaration was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2000 and explicit targets were set to eradicate key problems in human development by 2015. This collection focuses specifically on the goals relating to gender issues that are problematic for women. The most relevant and contentious is that of promoting gender equality and empowering women. The book provides an overview of this and investigates literature that considers how gender is central to achieving the other goals. The contributors distinctively consider gender in the context of human security (or insecurity); the reduction and elimination of conflict would seem to be central to achieving targets. One of the major themes of this collection is whether gender insecurity has been exacerbated in an increasingly insecure world. The book considers not only military and civilian conflict in the contemporary era but also security in the broader sense of human development, such as environmental, reproductive and economic security.

This book examines for the first time the gender policy of the Bauhaus, thereby shedding new light on the avant-garde school. An examination of the relationship between its famous artist-teachers not only with their male and female students but also with the masters of craft, the workshop leaders, who were supposedly their equals, reveals that the credo of equality was rarely adhered to. The artistic avant-garde of the Weimar Republic turns out to have been socially much more conservative than had previously been imagined.

As social welfare benefits are cut back. the widespread belief that gender discrimination has disappeared with women's greater labour force participation means that in an era of privatisation, 'reform' may be more harmful to women than beneficial.
