“The author has produced an excellent study of gender and social change. She has also broadened the audience and impact of the study by comparing the Appalachian region to peripheral zones in developing countries, and drawing heavily (and usefully) on the women and development literature. I also like the methodology. It is an excellent use of in-depth, qualitative life history interviews. The interviews speak strongly and are skillfully woven together around key themes and analysis.” John Gaventa, University of Tennessee
Women, Development, and Communities for Empowerment in Appalachiaby Virginia Rinaldo Seitz
This book is a wonderful feminist exploration of a topic not often explored in the feminist literature - working class women in an isolated, rural setting.
