Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who are the grassroots warriors on the front lines of the war on poverty? Through in-depth interviews, Nancy Naples presents the voices of over sixty women--African American, Puerto Rican and white European American--who have fought for social and economic justice in the low-income neighborhoods of New York City and Philadelphia. These women, as community workers and activist mothers, contribute vital and often unpaid services to ther communities, offering complex political perspectives and empowering others. Naples reconceptualizes labor, mothering and politics from the standpoint of women committed to work and politically organize on behalf of low income urban communities. Her analysis reveals significant legacies from past social movements, and examines how gender, ethnicity and class influence political consciousness and practice.

Synopsis:

This volume explores the connections among motherhood, work, politics, and community in low-income urban environments. The author interviewed more than 60 women, who have struggled for social justice and economic survival in low-income neighbourhoods in New York City and Philadelphia.
