This collection of original research articles explores how race, ethnicity, and social class have shaped the work lives of women. Women and Work explores womenĂs working conditions, their wages and salaries, their abilities to control their work environments, and how they see themselves and their options in the workplace. A great deal of importance is given to women of color, non-citizens, and working-class women¨groups that are often neglected in other treatments of this subject. The integration of work and family, womenĂs vision of their own work and consciousness as employees, and womenĂs resistance to exploitative and limiting work are themes are also addressed throughout this book. Written by and interdisciplinary group of women scholars, Women and Work will be of interest to faculty, researchers, and advanced students in the fields of sociology, organization studies, psychology, gender studies, womenĂs history, and economics.
