Girls' Economies: Work & Play Cultures
Edited by Miriam Forman-Brunell
and Diana Anselmo-Sequeira
foreword by Dr. Eileen Boris
We know more about the history of grownups' labor than we do about girls' work, especially in informal domains. We know more about adult women workers than about girlhood employment and work-themed amusements. We know more about girls' consumption practices than about their production patterns. We know more about childhood and play than we do about how play informs girls' work skills, sensibilities, and identities as workers. We know more about businessmen and women than about moneymaking girls.
