Silicon Valley, Women, and the California Dream: Gender, Class, and Opportunity in the Twentieth Century / Edition 1 available in Paperback
The story of immigrant women's lives and expectations are described in this study set in San Jose, California and Santa Clara County. Originating as the author's doctoral thesis (in 1977 from Stanford U.), Matthews draws on interviews as well as archival sources to describe women's lives and work in the canneries and other parts of the fruit industry, the defense industry during WWII, and eventually in the high-tech industries. Prominent issues are immigration, unions, and the notion of Santa Clara County as the "Feminist Capital of the Nation" because of the high number of women elected there. Annotation c.
