Women and Work: In Their Own Words
Edited by Maureen R. Michelson

Includes 92 stories with photographs of women in the workplace.

A chorus of women---from coal miner to orchestra conductor, firefighter to secretary, ferry pilot to judge---speak candidly about their working lives and the challenges and rewards. In addition to the personal stories, there are six essays that address concerns of working women on the 1990s. Concerns include sexual harassment, racism on the job, nontraditional job opportunities, managing jobs and family, the glass ceiling, and girls’ self-esteem. First-person accounts told with remarkable honesty are illustrated with powerful images of women on the job.

"Women and Work is a breathtaking original collection of autobiographical prose and photographs that will become one of the most important documents for further historical research... on women’s working lives in 20th-century America."

--Kathryn Kish Sklar, professor of history, State University of New York, Binghamton
