The Linkage between the Household and Workplace in the Experience of Dominican Immigrant Women in the United States.
Pessar, Patricia R.
International Migration Review, v18 n4 p1188-211 Win 1984
Examines how the status of Dominican women in the United States improves as a consequence of waged employment. Considers the ideological forces which root women in the household and discourage collective struggles in the workplace and suggests that the middle-class aspirations of Dominican families are in contradiction to their children's future employment opportunities.
