Economic and Power Relations Among Urban Tinkers: The Role of Women
Gmelch, Sharon Bohn
Urban Anthropology, 6, 3, 237-47, F 77
Examines the role of women in the economic and social organization of Irish Tinkers living in Dublin. Focuses on the influence of both age and life cycle events upon authority and power relationships between the sexes. Finds that although Tinker society is clearly male-dominated, women's roles follow a developmental cycle. (Author/GC)
