Based on interviews with women aged 25 to 54 who reside in the Chicago Consolidated Area, this volume explores the occupational involvement of women in the main categories of service, blue-collar, clerical, sales, homemaker (as manager of household), manager, and professional and technical worker. The authors explore the various paths by which the interviewees reached their current occupations, the construction of reality within which they live and carry out their responsibilities, and the ways in which they combine their jobs with other roles, especially those of wife and mother. The in-depth analysis contained in the study complements the findings of Volume 1 of City Women, which provided an overview of current knowledge about American women and their occupations.
