Dignity and Daily Bread compares the lives of women in the first and third worlds and examines how women have organized forms of production themselves. Covering a wide range of issues and areas, from cotton production in Bombay, conditions in Mexico and in some of the Far East economies, the contributors begin to break down some of the ideological barriers that colonialism and racism build among women. The immediacy of the accounts bring women's conditions in very different patriarchal societies to life, and underline the book's topicality in a time of global economic hardship. Dignity and Daily Bread will have considerable importance for women's studies and development studies.
