Summary
"Threads Through Time brings together twenty-five years of distinguished writing and includes essays on women's and labour history in relation to work, technology, consumption and organizing, as well as discussions of feminist debates on 'patriarchy' and 'women's difference'. There is also vivid autobiographical writing in which Rowbotham provides a personal context for the questions behind the history and theorizing."--BOOK JACKET
