Description

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.
