Soviet Women: Walking the Tightrope by Francine du Plessix Gray (ISBN - 9780385417330)

(USED) Very good condition.

"The subtitle reflects the attitudes of Soviet women, who are constitutionally guaranteed full equality with men, but who after decades of working harder than most members of the opposite sex are willing to be a little less equal and have a lot less work to do. The geographically, culturally, and economically diverse group of women interviewed herein are bound by the recurring theme of lack of time and often lack of energy to accomplish all the tasks expected of them. Working women have essentially two jobs-the one they go to and the one they return to. The women interviewed are interesting and often individualistic."
