Development and Immigration: Experiences of Non-US Born Black Women
Stephanie Seguino ()
The Review of Black Political Economy, 2012, vol. 39, issue 2, 217-222
An exploration of inequality at the intersection of race, gender, and nationality offers a means to explore how complex economic and social forces combine to shape women’s outcomes in ways that differ from men’s. Women’s responsibility for care work and other forms of unpaid labor inhibits labor force participation, and in some cases, redounds heavily on children. Those responsibilities, coupled with labor market discrimination against black women, US or foreign born, increases the difficulties single mothers face in providing for families.
