Ironically, globalization dynamics reveal the centrality of private sphere activities and their gendered politics to processes of identification, structural inequalities, and political action. Bringing the family/household into relation with nation-states and global capitalism (and vice versa) exposes the pervasive and interactive power of gender(ed) identifications and divisions of labor Today's global restructuring constitutes an erosion of nation-state power vis-à-vis managing national economies, protecting citizen's rights, and delivering social services. Situating gender and nationalism in this global context problematizes the accountability of nation-states and the pursuit of nationalism and other state-centric identities.
