About this book

Introduction

Multinationals have global reach in their search for profits; women, even more than men, are confined to their immediate community in their search for jobs. This book examines the interaction between multinationals and women in UK, Ireland, France and Germany, looking at inward investment by US and Japanese multinationals, as well as outward investment by European multinationals.
