Query From Nelson Oullett email@example.com 30 April 1998
One of my (undergrad) students is doing a comparative analysis (based on census data) on the influence religious values have had at the turn of the century (1880-1920) on the participation of Italian, Mexican, and French Canadian women on the U.S. labor market. She is now in the process of compiling a short bibliography for this project. At this time, she has considered the books of Bruno Ramirez, Virginia Yans-McLaughlin, Alice Kessler-Harris, S.J. Kleinberg, and Gary Gerstle.
Any other suggestions, especially on the history of Mexican women working in the U.S.? Thanks in advance!
