Dignity and Daily Bread: New Forms of Economic Organising Among Poor Women in the Third World and the First
Sheila Rowbotham, Swasti Mitter
Routledge, 1994 - Medical - 233 pages
Dignity and Daily Bread compares the lives of women in the First and Third worlds and examines how women have organized forms of production themselves. Covering a wide range of issues and areas, from cotton production in Bombay, conditions in Mexico and in some of the Far East economies, the contributors begin to break down some of the ideological barriers that colonialism and racism build among women. The immediacy of the accounts highlights women's conditions in very different patriarchal societies.
