This IPE Classic investigates the interrelations between women's participation in the urban wage economy and their productive and reproductive roles in the household and family. With a new Preface and Foreword, it argues that the household itself is an important determinant of the character and timing of women's labour force participation.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is a must-read for scholars and students interested in the relationship between women and 'everyday international political economy.' The general reader also will gain broader historical-cultural contexts for understanding today's debates on women, work and family.' - Christine B. N. Chin, American University, USA

'One of the finest volumes ever on the intersections between female labour force participation and family structure. Its publication should encourage GAD scholars to embrace the rich historical legacy of the field, as well as impress upon them the continued need for solidly-researched, empirically-informed, comparative inputs to conceptual debate.' -Sylvia Chant, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK

'This classic work is a must (re-)read for old and new generations of gender specialists as it addresses issues that continue to be pertinent today while at the same time providing a long(er) term perspective, something which is increasingly missing among our students.' - Marianne H. Marchand, Universidad de las Americas Puebla, Mexico

'This anthology represents the best of the early feminist scholarship on women's reproductive and productive labor in the global political economy. Without it, we would not have the insight we have today on the intersections of intimacy, (re)productive labor, and globalization. It meant so much for us when it first came out, and it continues to provide a rich empirical and conceptual foundation for a feminist re-imagining of a more just global economic order today.' - Amy Lind, University of Cincinnati, USA
