As Whitworth (1989) so cogently has pointed out, this perspective suffers from the limits inherent in the liberal feminist approach to development (WID); it brings women into international relations without confronting the structural dimensions of women's subordination. In bridging the gap between liberal pluralist models of international processes and critical international relations theories, the World Order Models Project (Falk, 1975) appears to open up significant space for theorizing gender, given its broad set of concerns for social justice, equitable redistribution of material resources, application of human rights, ecological balance, and peace.

More importantly, the extent to which regime analyses can provide the basis for an emancipatory political project that speaks to the aspirations of all women is severely limited. Regime perspectives take structural inequalities in the international political economy and interstate system as given and seek to work within these parameters. As a consequence, power inequalities among actors that arise from structural inequalities in social power at the national and international levels remain outside the scope of the regime analytic framework.
