MEDIA REVIEWS

""Susan Tiano employs extensive field work in Mexicali's maquiladoras as a case study of the roles that women play within the evolving international division of labor.""
"BorderLines""


""Tiano concludes that working-class families do consider it acceptable for women to work outside the house; it gives them more input in family decisions, but men remain in the labor force in different occupations. The 'outward appearance of docility' covers women's methods of adapting. Tiano suggests that in the future, these women may strike for higher wages or leave the assembly plants and seek other employment.""
