summary
Drawing on revisionist social theories relating to Chicano family structure as well as on feminist theory, Patricia Zavella paints a compelling picture of the Chicano women who work in northern California's fruit and vegetable canneries. Her book combines social history, shop-floor enthnography, and indepth interviews to explore the linkages between Chicano family life and gender inequality in the labor market.
