What are the effects of the political and economic failure of globalization in the context of African gender development?
Globalization has reached certain populations on the continent of Africa, while other populations remain marginalized in the global political and financial economy. Thus, some people do not have access to technologies that could increase the effectiveness various practices in agriculture, education, and economic development. Since women on the African continent generally make far less money on the African continent (as everywhere), the lack of access to these technologies can make it difficult for African women to gain upward mobility. For example, agricultural practices may not be efficient enough to produce a surpluss for buying and selling. This means that many African women will find it difficult to participate in global market economies.
