Women in the Worlds of Labour
Interdisciplinary and Intersectional Perspectives
Edited by Mary E John and Meena Gopal
The authors examine India’s female workforce, looking at paid and unpaid labour, from workers in the beedi industry to anganwadi workers and women in trade unions. The volume explores how caste, class and sexuality affect women’s work, and attempts to emphasise issues that often go unaddressed in analyses of labour.
