She is critical, not only of the specific policy prescriptions but of the whole economic paradigm which the World Bank, IMF and associated institutions put forward.

She presents alternative approaches - including human development and ecological economics - which are emerging and, in an attempt at paradigm shift, incorporates their best elements from a feminist perspective. This recognizes how the emerging global vision of labour is transforming not only production, but also reproduction, and argues that women need to adopt a three-pronged strategy of challenging the market, transforming the state and building a genuine civil society.
