Routledge, 1996 - Business & Economics - 210 pages
1 Review
Money determines the way we live our lives. In a patriarchal society women experience money as one more element of control: often abusive, sometimes paralyzing. In The Price You Pay, Margaret Randall interviews women from a wide range of economic, racial, and cultural backgrounds to reveal the complex role money plays in their lives.
The Price You Pay is for the wives who hide money from their husbands, single women or lesbians who struggle against discriminating financial practices, and daughters of immigrants who remember what money meant in the transition between worlds. In short, The Price You Pay should be read by anyone who has ever thought about the power of money in our lives.
