Description - Dignity and Daily Bread by Swasti Mitter

Dignity and Daily Bread compares the lives of women in the First and Third Worlds and examines how women have resisted and reorganised existing forms of production to create alternative, more humane circumstances of work and daily life. Covering a wide range of issues and areas, from street vendors of India and garment workers of Mexico to homeworkers of London, the contributors begin to break down some of the ideological barriers that colonialism and racism build among women. The immediacy of the accounts bring women's conditions in very different types of societies to life, and underlines the book's topicality in a time of global economic hardship.
