Book Description

4 Feb 2009 8178299224 978-8178299228
This book contains narratives pertaining to the challenges, struggles and success stories of women in the workplace who come from diverse cultures and social backgrounds. The essays discuss the struggles of women who were marginalised but who fought for recognition, dignity, and respect in their workplaces and personal lives. The narratives cross cultural boundaries presenting multiple dimensions of the struggle and success of women from different walks of life.

Working Women: Stories of Strife, Struggle and Survival brings hope for those who continue to suffer in silence. This multi-cultural anthology of essays highlights women's perspectives on a wide range of issues: survival in the workplace, spirituality and religion, empowerment and financial independence, and health and wellness. It provides a space for women to present their lived realities within a global context.

Given its racy and lucid narrative style, this book would interest a wide readership including working women from various backgrounds, women's groups and non-governmental organizations. It would also interest those involved in women's studies, gender studies, organisational culture and communication, sociology and human resource management.
