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.
