Women and Work In Indonesia

Inside Indonesia has a review of the new volume of essays entitled Women and Work In Indonesia, edited by Michele Ford and Lyn Parker.  I personally have just gotten it from the library but have not had time to read it.  However, according to Teri Caraway, reviewer and scholar of the Indonesian labor movement, “No other book on women and work in Indonesia has the breadth of this volume.”
