About this title


Tapestries of Life proposes a way of putting women at the center of our thinking by structuring it out of the dailiness of women's lives. The focus is on women of diverse races, classes, ages, and geographic regions in the United States. Aptheker draws upon the works of women writers, poets, artists, dramatists, dancers, musicians, and academics as well as the words of women factory workers, domestics, and agricultural laborers. She explores how to promote balance in a system that institutionalizes class, race, and gender inequities at every level.

From the Back Cover:

Aptheker 'weaves together the voices of women survivors of the Holocaust and of the U.S. concentration camps for Japanese Americans, Chicana cannery workers and southern cotton-mill girls, older lesbians and elderly Jews, Afro-American women in slavery and contemporary Afro-American writers, and others, in order to explore women's ways of seeing. Her analyses of oral histories, novels, legends, poetry, and art show how we can use these records of women's and men's lives.' -- Sandra Harding, Women's Review of Books
