From the Paper:

"One unique aspect of the human development perspective vis-a-vis free trade and market liberalization is the central role women play in market activity but also their definitive exclusion from many of the resultant benefits. Past research has illustrated the fact that women, who work in factories contributing both time and labor as well as taxes and spending, are, more often than not, treated as second class citizens in their home markets ("Gender" 1995). This inequality is manifest in women's access to the same education benefits, healthcare treatment, and nutrition services ("Gender" 1995). One of the most unfortunate aspects to this disparity in treatment based on gender is that women are also tasked with caring for the children in these societies and thus, children are also indirectly denied equality of treatment and basic human dignities."
