The paper presents a feminist critique of globalization. The mainstream theories of globalization have a masculine bias. Bringing gender aspects to globalization characterizes global actors and creates a framework for global issues. Mostly the economic globalization and the changes of the organization of labour globally are addressed. The link between the hegemonic form of masculinity and feminized production is described. The global production is dependent on cheap women's work in factories of transnational corporations in the global South. Flexibilization and informalization of labour is associated with its feminization. Globalization processes are changing gender systems and affecting the dichotomies of the masculine and feminine world by bringing more and more women into formerly male-dominated spheres, especially production and migration.
