This detailed look at the paid and unpaid work of women uses recent research to reexamine Europe-wide developments. Heavy on statistical evidence, mostly from Britain, Germany and France. Good for classroom study of fluctuations in technological, demographic, economic and familial changes, and in relation of ideologies about gender to women's work. High School or AP class level.
