Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book packs a lot of material in a relatively short amount of pages. The first-person narratives make for authenticity, and there is much to discuss. I shall consider it when next I teach my course." --Robert Langran, Villanova University

"Comprehensive and easy to read, with both narrative form and quantitative data to support the information presented."--N. Lebon, Randolph-Macon College

By A Customer on April 12, 2000
Format: Hardcover
The book focuses on the problems that face women everyday in the workplace. Whether one is actually referring to the labor force as the workplace, or the home as the workplace is a huge part of this book. Our society accepts that women should automatically take on the responsibilities of child care and housekeeping in addition to a regular job (if they wish to even have a job on top of all these tasks). It's not easy for women, and Hesse-Biber uses several examples and hard data to back up this book.
Not only is the "average, white American supermom" discusses, but also the differences in race, class, and other factors that can influence women's place in the "working world."
The book is very useful and Hesse-Biber always takes a strong feminist perspective. One fault would probably be that she doesn't show both sides as best she could, but overall, the book is an enjoyable one.
