African American women who spent a major portion of their lives in domestic service reflect on the strategies they used to manage work, family, and the relationships involved; and how they conceptualized such social structural factors as race, class, poverty, and a low- class occupation. Originally published in 1979 as Dill's thesis, and reprinted now as a contribution--and to some degree a correction--to current feminist ideas. Annotation c.
