Summary
  • "Ruth Milkman's groundbreaking research in women's labor history has contributed important perspectives on work and unionism in the United States. On Gender, Labor, and Inequality presents four decades of Milkman's essential writings, tracing the parallel evolutions of her ideas and the field she helped define. Milkman's introduction frames a career-spanning scholarly project: her interrogation of historical and contemporary intersections of class and gender inequalities in the workplace, and the efforts to challenge those inequalities. Early chapters focus on her pioneering work on women's labor during the Great Depression and the World War II years. In the book's second half, Milkman turns to the past fifty years, a period that saw a dramatic decline in gender inequality even as growing class imbalances created greater-than-ever class disparity among women. She concludes with a previously unpublished essay comparing the impact of the Great Depression and the Great Recession on women workers"--
  • "This project will present a retrospective of the scholarship of the influential sociologist Ruth Milkman, a charismatic and dynamic speaker and teacher as well as author. From her early work on women's labor history, job segregation by sex during World War II, and reversal of women's work opportunities after the war through more recent work on the work challenges and organizing struggles of marginalized immigrant worker groups, Milkman has contributed significant perspectives to the study of work and unionism in the United States. This volume provides a foundation for anyone seeking to understand gender and labor issues in both historical and contemporary contexts. Milkman will provide a substantial introduction to the volume and frame the material by adding section introductions and headnotes. She will also update much of the material"--
