CHOICE Review

An examination of issues relevant to women's work is the focus of this collection of descriptive, qualitative research papers presented at a 1985 conference. The research included in-depth interviews with women whose occupations ranged from domestic work to teaching, from prostitution to management, and extensive quotations reveal their problems at work and the effects on their private lives. The section headings are indicative both of the contents of the volume and of working women's problems: ``The Caretaker Role''; ``Professional Practice without Professional Power''; and ``Making It in the Male World.'' Policy suggestions are presented, primarily related to the needs for equitable treatment and wages in the workplace, and means of accommodating family responsibilities, particularly adequate and affordable day-care facilities for children. Similar in subject, but contemporaneous rather than historical, this work is less strident in tone, and more readable than Hidden Aspects of Women's Work, edited by Christine Bose, et al. (CH, Feb '88). Recommended for collections in women's studies and labor economics at the advanced undergraduate and graduate level.-E.P. Hoffman, Western Michigan University
