In addition, this statement speciWcally connects the notion that women’s economic independence depends upon changes to larger economic arrangements and access to public services. Following a moral argument, it notes that women have become overly burdened by poverty due to issues beyond their control: structural causes such as war, postcolonial governments, and changes to the global economy to name a few. In this example, women’s economic independence is networked to the need for governments and supranational agencies to change wider structures of poverty, including making sure women have access to necessary public services; thus economic inde38 GENDER MAINSTREAMING pendence becomes part of the rhetoric of gender mainstreaming only insofar as this independence is supported by larger economic structures.

Understanding this networked relationship enables rhetoricians to examine how contemporary policy arguments are attached to historical relationships of power and how these arguments get reinterpreted and rewritten during economic shifts such as the rise of neoliberalism. The practice of networking arguments can also expand the work of transnational feminists by connecting the ways in which patterns of persuasion are aVected by extra-rhetorical forces, such as the rise of transna20 N E T WO R K I N G A R G U M E N T S tional capital, enduring (neo)colonial relationships, and neoliberalism, to create policies that attempt to address women’s role in an expanding global economy.

In addition, post-Beijing gender mainstreaming policies follow the neoliberal argument (and then to this extent become part of the discourse of neoliberalism) that governments should only manage social services from afar and not get directly involved with those services; however, these policies allocate social services to the market, going against the Beijing Platform’s recommendation that governments (Beijing Declaration 5), not the private sector, work to mainstream a gender perspective into all levels of policy.
