Mortgaging Women's Lives: Feminist Critiques of Structural Adjustment by Pamela Sparr

This book explores the impact on Third World women of the stringent economic prescriptions of the World Bank and IMF. Introductory chapters explain in non-jargonistic terms exactly what structural adjustment is.

Mortgaging Women's Lives Reviews

'A thoughtful and well researched contribution to the analysis of structural adjustment policies worldwide.'
Gita Sen, Indian Institute of Management

'There have been remarkably few books on this subject written from a feminist perspective. This is therefore a particularly welcome addition.'
Peggy Antrobus, general coordinator of DAWN

'This book captures the real life situation in Africa. It should wake up the people who read it and inspire, motivate and move them to action in solidarity with women.'
Julia Mulaha, Women's Programme, National Council of Churches Kenya
