The author expresses her view that while capitalism has benefits to some, it is a powerful pressure on women around the world. The paper states that despite all the advances women have made in American politics and attaining corporate power, globally, women are still the second sex victims. The paper discusses sexual stereotypes in advertising, prostitution, sex trafficking, package tours for sex and bride burning in India.
From the Paper:"The pressure of encroaching capitalism, which is slowly emerging in developing nations of Asia, for example, brings with it a resurgence in prostitution. Women in Asia, particularly, are regarded as a commodity. Due to the globalization, the effects of capitalism and their governments' inability to provide employment, many of the women from Southeast Asia adopt prostitution. Most of these girls and women come from very poor places and slums where they do not have any food, shelter even clear drinking water. Often they carry the burden of supporting their families as well, and it is common practice for daughters to leave their home in the rice fields to go to the cities to prostitute themselves."
