This half-hour documentary focuses on a dual theme: the increasingly internationalized manufacturing strategy of multinational corporations, especially in Mexico and Hong Kong, and their equally strategic employment of women, both here and in the Third World. Explores why they often hire women, especially minority women, and what working conditions are like for women working on these assembly lines, both here and in the Third World. Highlights the booming American electronics industry. Produced for International Women's Day, 1981, by Mary Sinclair and Maggie Geddes. Engineered by Susan Elisabeth. BROADCAST: KPFA, 8 Mar. 1981.
