Description: Working Women in America studies the dramatic growth in women's labor force participation with an eye toward understanding what the actual experience of working women is today. The book offers a broad perspective on the diversity of women and their work and it raises the need to rethink ideas concerning work, family, and gender roles in order to help solve women's work and family life dilemmas. The central argument of the book is that in order to understand the position of women in the work world, one must analyze women's situation in the economy, the family, education, and the polity -- in short, within society at large -- because these various social institutions connect, reflect, and influence one another. The authors begin with an historical perspective on women at work which recognizes the importance of the economic and legal. dimensions of women's work lives. This book lays the groundwork for a further examination of the particular work situations of women and a recognition that the diversity of woman's work experiences are formed by racial, class, and other such inequalities. Working Women in America intersperses first-person accounts throughout, the book and provides a number of vignettes of women employed in a variety of occupations.
