The Business of Women’s Empowerment. Corporate Gender Politics in the Global South
With catchphrases like “smart economics” and “the business case for gender equality,” global corporations are increasingly involved in gender and development politics in the Global South. In feminist debates, this has been understood both in terms of increased impact and as a way to co-opt emancipatory demands. An emblematic example of this tendency, The Coca-Cola Company’s 5by20 program has won broad recognition for its global reach and ambitious goal: to economically empower five million female micro-entrepreneurs across its supply chain before the end of 2020. Based on situated engagements with program implementers and participants in Mexico and South Africa, this presentation interrogates the proposed “win-win” relation between global corporations and women in marginalized economic positions.
Presentationen baseras på Sofie Tornshills bok, The Business of Women’s Empowerment. Corporate Gender Politics in the Global South, som publicerades förra året.
