A very presentable copy of this illustrated, annotated bibliography on women's labor in Twentieth Century America from The Feminist Theory Collective, a socialist and feminist study group which sought to integrate the situation of women and Marxism. From Introduction: "In trying to combine a Marxist understanding of society witht he fabric of women's experience, we were led to study the history of the working lives of women, bothin in the home and in the wage labor foce. We wanted to know how the content of their work lives was affected by the continuing development of U.S. captialism and circumstances within it, such as wars and depressions. Most traditional history has neglected labor and women: few sources deal with both together. It was necessary to sift through past and present information to discover the reality of women's lives, and to separate that reality from the ideology about it....In our best hopes, tehse readings will be a tool to help others as we all struggle to make OUR OWN history."
