 the (in)visibilised is politicised

"Kristof rarely explains how European extraction of precious raw materials, exploitation of native farmers and land resources in colonized territories, unfair tax laws, exportation of resources to the empire, employment of indentured and slave labor, and sustained suppression of colonial subjects over centuries stunted women’s development in postcolonial societies. Neither does he venture into analysis of how neoliberal policies pursued by the International Monetary Fund, World Bank and the “Washington Consensus” required many debtor nations in Africa and Asia in the early 1980s to pull back from their support for the public sector and state-based employment programs in exchange for participating in structural adjustment programs

— Nicholas Kristof and the Politics of Writing About Women’s Oppression in Darker Nations
