Description

With new data on women's economic status in the '90s, this classic feminist book explores the intersecting effects of race and gender on women from diverse backgrounds. "Amott and Matthaei have given us a lovingly detailed, richly textured history of American working women... Almost everyone will find a bit of her own grandmother's struggles and contributions in this impressively comprehensive book."--Barbara Ehrenreich
