This excellent book. edited by Barbara Ehrenreich (Nickeled and Dimed) and Arlie Hochschild, gives startling insight into the horrible jobs women have in the global economy, starting with being lied to about a job oppty and have that job turned into being a captive prostitute. It is an alarming global scandal that no one seems to be doing anything about, so if this book generates some positive action in this area, it will be a godsend to the many women, esp. in the third world, whose lives are basically taken away from them by a kind of capitalism that values money over lives.Was this review helpful?

It's sickening to read about, but it makes you want to act to create better futures for these women. But it's not so sickening that you shouldn't read it. It's a critically important book.
