Summary "This book brings together political economists, sociologists, practising lawyers, industrial relations experts and trade unionists from three continents. It reviews EU policy on sex discrimination, citizenship and immigration; analyses the effects of globalization and neoliberal economic policies on gender equality in the UK, North America and New Zealand; includes case-studies of female immigrant workers in Italy and the UK; and provides a critical review of pay equity legislation in the UK and Canada. It ends with a positive focus on strategies to make the current legislative framework work for women."--BOOK JACKET
