Are Women Globalization's Winners?

In the Globalist

Canada has a new foreign minister, Pierre Pettigrew. Reason enough to delve into our archive and present his argument about who benefits and who loses in the era of globalization. In this Globalist retrospective, he finds that three distinct groups — women, immigrants and young people — will not only benefit from globalization, but are better equipped than most for handling its challenges.

The article is adapted from a speech Pettigrew gave at the World Forum 2000 and is more relevant than ever today. Remember, his remarks were made four years prior to the release of Friedman's bestseller, "The World Is Flat," which makes it a very compelling read.
