Woman's Wage-Pa

Woman's Wage-Pa Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hidden inside everyone's paycheck is a set of social constructs that conveys messages about our lives and social roles. In this path breaking book, Alice Kessler-Harris explores the meanings of women's wages in the United States in the twentieth century.

Synopsis:

In this pathbreaking book, Alice Kessler-Harris explores the meanings of women's wages in the United States in the twentieth century, focusing on three sets of issues that capture the transformation of women's roles: the battle over minimum wage for women, which exposes the relationship between family ideology and workplace demands; the argument over equal pay for equal work, which challenges gendered patterns of self-esteem and social organization; and the current debate over comparable worth, which seeks to incorporate traditionally female values into new work and family trajectories. Together these issues trace the many ways in which gendered meaning has been produced, transmitted, and challenged.
