This book documents the struggle of the labor/feminist alliance to obtain legislation of equal pay for work of equal value in businesses and neo-conservative anti-feminist interests. Examining the gender and class struggles in the paid workplace, the marketplace, and the household, it focuses on the arguments used by both sides in jurisdictions where such legislation has been achieved, at the federal levels in Canada and the United States. The author demonstrates that defects and loopholes in the laws mean that the victory is far from complete, and that equal pay legislation may represent a "passive revolution," an attempt to co-opt the labor and feminist movements.
