DescriptionThis article explores women's experience of employment within the electronics industry's export processing zones (EPZs) of northern Thailand. Is the preference shown by many employers for women really 'good for women'? Does the increasing feminisation of labour open up new opportunities for women, or is it simply exploitation? This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
