No matter what door you walk through, pain is on the other side waiting to swallow you whole-this is what oppression feels like for a Black Woman Working. In this book, the author, a married, African-American mother with a Ph.D., reflects upon her private experiences navigating paid and unpaid work. In the process, she exposes racism, sexism, and worker exploitation as public issues that create structural barriers to not only integrating work and life, but to experiencing dignity and satisfaction with work. Using the author's sociological imagination, a caged bird analogy, and Black feminist thought, this book is a social justice project. It calls upon women to act individually or collectively and challenges institutions to respond to the needs of African American women.
