The effects of globalization on women are mixed: they can be positive and negative, direct and indirect. It is a matter of fine judgement, laced with a touch of ideology, as to whether or not the evidence points, on balance, towards a positive rather than a negative influence. Although no contemporary society treats its women as well as its men, gender inequalities are less severe today than they were half a century ago. There are many reasons for this improvement; globalization is just one of them.
