How race, ethnicity and social class shape the working lives, working conditions

and wages of women is explored in this collection of original research articles.

With the emphasis on women from non-white or working-class backgrounds,

Women and Work assesses women's abilities to control their work environments, how they see themselves and their options in the work place. Throughout, the collection addresses such topics as the integration of work and family, women's vision of their own work and consciousness as employees, and women's resistance to exploitative and limiting work.
