The Impact of Gendered Violence and Globalization on Rural Women in Asia

性別暴力及全球化對亞洲農材婦女的衝擊

Eleanor ROFFMAN

Abstract

Ongoing internal strife and displacement, the social disruption of migrant work, unfair labor practices, gender disparities in health care and social reform have all contributed to the diminishing status of women in Sri Lanka, a country that has a high literacy rate, free health care, and universal suffrage. This commentary addresses the work of Jeanne Marecek (2006, this issue) and expands it to include the impact of gendered violence and globalization on women’s lives in Sri Lanka and other rural parts of South Asia.

摘要

斯里蘭卡境內頻繁的內鬥及人民流徙,外地工作引致的社會解體,不公平的勞工措施,醫療制度及社會改革中的性別不平等,這些因素都令斯里蘭卡這個人民識字率高、提供免費醫療服務及全民投票的國家,其婦女的地位不斷下跌。本文以Marecek(2006,本刊)的文章為基礎,把討論焦點擴及性別暴力及全球化對斯里蘭卡及其他南亞地區農材婦女生活的衝擊。
