The paper explores the ways in which the convergence of economic crises and gendered processes of globalization have created a new role for states and new scenarios for women's paid work. It examines the feminization of state-backed employment programmes in Peru. The relationship between feminization and the state is analyzed. The contradictory conceptualization of work embodied in state-backed initiatives is interrogated. Through empirical archive and interview based research it examines the implications of the move from a rethoric of providing work for men to one that emphasized welfare aid for women
