China remains to a large extent a blind spot in the gendered analysis of neoliberal globalisation. Only a few in-depth studies on women workers in export production have been published recently. In particular the service sector and care economies are unknown territories which, however, are increasingly affected by transnational trade regimes. News about resistance against the restructuring of the economy and its high social and environmental costs are hushed up. This paper tries to map out areas for further gender research rather than attempting to provide comprehensive information.
