From Working Girl to Working Mother: The Female Labor Force in the United States, 1820-1980

Longueur: 330 pages4 heures

Description

In this fresh perspective on one of the major demographic trends in our history, Weiner skillfully interweaves evidence on women's employment, government social policy, and the contemporary debate about women's sphere to explore the interconnections between patterns of women's work and the ideologies that arose in response to that work. In uniting the sources and methods of social and intellectual history, the author illuminates the changes in women's lives during the past 250 years.

Originally published in 1985.
