Working Women

“Taking Back Our Kids” flagrantly overlooks the fact that African-American women have always worked outside the home—before, during, and after the 1950s. Further, it has only been in the last couple hundred years that some women—specifically white upper-class American and British women—did not work outside the home. Immigrants, slaves, and women of lower socioeconomic standing have always worked outside the home.
