12 on Tue Oct 09 11:20:55 BST 2012. 003 Cambridge Books Online © Cambridge University Press, 2012 17 Feminisation of work and the gender pyramid To achieve the latter a state would be obliged to organise direct financial support to care-givers outside the market place. Here carers and workers would be different individuals but treated equally. This option does not seem politically feasible in the Global North and is economically impossible in the Global South. Women continue to take disproportionate responsibility for care leading to what is described as the ‘triple burden’ (paid work, care work in the family and wider caring in the community due to reductions in state provision) and the consequent ‘feminisation of poverty’.

These private standards may, but this is not necessarily a corollary, be more widely adopted for domestic consumers or prompt the state to enact similar regulations. These developments raise questions concerning the possibly diminishing power of the state. If national economic policies are increasingly dominated by global and regional trade regimes on the one hand, and governance through private standards on the other, what happens to any wider state-based gender strategy? Activists focus on the state to improve women’s position within the labour market by extending rights and benefits down the gender pyramid (increasing entitlements within segment B).

Suppliers in the South can be faced with a plethora of ‘private’ standards, which may originate from individual lead firms, from industry-based organisations, or increasingly, from multi-stakeholder groups, which include consumer groups, development-focused NGOs and industry representatives. These developments are prompting organisations in the South to develop their own private standards as a response. Thus these might involve the setting of sector-wide standards for non-traditional agricultural exports to provide the quality standard required in the consuming countries.
