This collection of essays examines how economic restructuring and changing social conditions are reshaping both the paid and unpaid work that women do. It provides an analytic framework to document in particular current trends in the responsibilities that women have in caring for others, including children, spouses, parents, and extended families. Containing original arguments and new research, the book emphasizes a feminist perspective and investigates race and class as well as gender.
