Summary
"Mining Women is the first work that explores gender relations and women's work and activism in different parts of the world and links each of these not only to cultural and domestic arrangements but also to an emerging colonial, industrial, and capitalist system from the eighteenth through the twentieth centuries. This global, case study/comparative approach reveals that despite the tremendous variation in mining practices and national experiences, women have challenged the constraints of gender definitions on their lives, work, and militancy."--Jacket
