Dignity

Lower Income Women Tell of Their Lives and Struggles
Fran Leeper Buss
Buss has compiled the stories of 10 lower-income women, told in their own words

Description

Dignity brings together the stories of ten lower income American women whose backgrounds vary, but who share a struggle for survival and a quest for dignity in the face of hardship. Young or old, urban or rural, welfare recipient or union activist, each relates her life story with rich detail, poignant humor, and remarkable courage.

Fran Leeper Buss's compilation of oral histories is supplemented by photographs and an extensive selected bibliography. Psychologist Susan Contratto introduces the volume and offers insights into its recurring biological, social, and psychological themes.
