About the Author
Dorothy Sue Cobble is Professor of Labor Studies, History, and Women's/Gender Studies at Rutgers University. She is the author of The Other Women's Movement: Workplace Justice and Social Rights in Modern America and Dishing it Out: Waitresses and Their Unions in the Twentieth Century, and the editor of Women and Unions, Forging a Partnership, also from Cornell.
"Cobble has edited an insightful volume that extends our understanding of how American unions are responding to the increased presence of women in the workforce. Several chapters discuss how to implement flexible grievance and work systems to better serve women's needs to balance home demands with work and how to organize groups that were not thought of as ripe for organization, including females immigrant workers, informal economy workers, and home care workers.... Highly recommended."-- "Choice"
