Women Making a Meaningful Choice-Technology and New Economic Order

Technology and New Economic Order Nirmala Banerjee Swasti Mitter This paper addresses the closely linked issues of Indian working women's response to technological changes and globalisation and the impact of these changes on women's work. The authors examine several instances of women of diverse backgrounds interacting with changing technologies, in the past and currently, in different regions and industries of the country, The analysis shows that, in spite of the many differences, the reasons why women have been comparatively the greater losers are surprisingly similar. Besides published secondary material, the authors draw on documentation of their experience at the grass roots by a number of NGOs engaged in organising women workers in the formal and informal sectors.
