Abstract

This paper suggests that the urban emphasis of this collection, in addition to offsetting a previous rural bias, also reflects a rejection of rural gender roles by contemporary urban women. Although earlier studies of rural communities pondered problems of class differentiation, they were not concerned with the gender-and-class issues now visible. Where rural ethnography depended on combining residence with opportunistic observation, contemporary ethnography has foregrounded the interview. We must welcome new research themes with human rights connections, such as mothers in prison, and the vulnerability of undocumented immigrants, women in particular.
