The main focus of this chapter is to identify and discuss the positive and negative impacts of globalisation, and by so doing find out if the latter outweighs the former. To do this, we divide this chapter into seven parts. The first part introduces the chapter, while the second and third parts conceptually define or clarify feminism, globalism and globalisation. The fourth part tries to establish a nexus between feminism and globalism but the fifth part identifies and explains different perspectives or theories of feminist international relations. The sixth part is concerned with identifying and discussing the positive and negative impacts of globalisation on women. Finally, the seventh part summarises and concludes the chapter.
