This study traces the social origins of the sexual division of labour. It provides a history of the related processes of colonization and "housewifization" and extends this analysis to the contemporary new international division of labour and the role which women have to play as the cheapest producers and consumers. In this new edition, Maria Mies applies her theory to the globalized world and answers her critics.
