Women and Work in U. S. History: An Annotated Selected Bibliography.
Business and Professional Women's Foundation, Washington, DC.
One-hundred five citations are presented in this selected annotated bibliography about the interchange between American women and the American economy. Readings were selected to dispute the presumptions that women's natural place is in the home and that women were not integral parts of the growth of America and its history. Instead, research shows that women were and are still an integral part of the employment scene. The materials cited in the bibliography are arranged into four categories. The first category cites research in the methods and theory of women's history and theoretical frameworks developed about women's work experience. The next two sections, Earlier Scholarship and Contemporary Scholarship, contain general works with pertinent sections and studies dealing specifically with aspects of women's work, including the exploration of the sexual division of labor, labor shortages, and women's role in labor unionization. Included in the citations are the experiences of Jewish, Black, American Indian, and immigrant women. The final section contains guides to further resources. Although a few of the books were written in the 1910s or 1930s, most were publshed in the 1970s. Arranged alphabetically by author, the citations contain complete bibliographic information, including author, title, place of publication, date, and a short annotation. An author index completes the document. (Author/JR)
