[EAN: 9780874178135], Neubuch, [PU: University of Nevada Press, Reno], EILEEN V. WALLIS, WOMEN IN THE WORK FORCE LOS ANGELES, ANGELES, Jacket, 272 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. AMERICAN WEST. The half-century between 1880 and 1930 saw rampant growth in Los Angeles and an equally rapid movement of women into the work force. Earning Power examines the role that women played in this growth as they attempted to make their financial way in a rapidly changing world. Los Angeles during these years was one of the most ethnically diverse and gender-balanced American cities. Moreover, its accelerated urban growth generated a great deal of economic, social, and political instability. Author Eileen V. Wallis examines how women negotiated issues of gender, race, ethnicity, and class to gain access to professions and skilled work in Los Angeles. She also discusses the contributions they made to the region's history as political and social players, employers and employees, and as members of families. Wallis reveals how the lives of women in the urban West differed in many ways from those of their sisters in more established eastern cities. The experiences of women workers force us to reconsider many assumptions about the nature of Los Angeles's economy, as well as about the ways women participated in it. Earning Power is a major contribution to our understanding of labor in the urban West during this transformative period and of the crucial role that women played in shaping western cities, economies, society, and politics. Eileen V. Wallis is assistant professor of history at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. "The intersections of race, ethnicity, gender, and class are front and center in Eileen Wallis's important new book on women in Los Angeles workplaces. Not only does her study capture the multicultural West, but also the different development of LA's economy within the context of Progressive Era reform." Ñ Joanne Goodwin, associate professor of history at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and author of Gender and the Politics of Welfare Reform: Mothers' Pensions in Chicago, 1911-1929 "Earning Power succeeds admirably in introducing readers to the working women of Progressive-Era Los Angeles, in all of their class, ethnic, and racial diversity." -Southern California Quarterly "Wallis illuminates an important and as yet understudied chapter in the story of urban women's work in the United States during the Gilded and Progressive Era." -Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era (Key Words: Eileen V. Wallis, Women In The Work Force In Los Angeles, Women In Los Angeles).
