About

Women In and Beyond the Global is a feminist Open Access forum which seeks to transform relationships among digital media, gender and democracy.

WIBG begins its investigation of the exploitation of women’s paid and unpaid labor within and beyond four social-spatial structures: the global Household, the globalĀ Prison, the globalĀ City, and global information Networks.
