WOMEN OF THE WORLD UNITE!

WEdGE: Women's Education in the Global Economy is a teaching tool for "activists, organizers, rebels, and hell raisers" intended for use in community, religious, women's, and service organizations. Using principles of popular education, WEDGE demonstrates how global economic trends have affected women and how they are responding. Topic areas include structural adjustment programs, unpaid and contingent work, cutbacks in social welfare, "the global assembly line," environmental impacts on women, human rights abuses, and organizing for positive change.
