Keywords: Globalization, Phillipines, Economic development,


In recent years, many feminist writers in the Philippines have analysed the nexus between gender, globalization, development and security issues. In this paper I draw parallels between Philippine and Western feminist insights on gender and globalization. I provide an analysis of Philippine feminist writings on development and security issues, and especially their critique of the processes of globalisation.
