Annotation Friedman-Sasaba (sociology and women's studies, U. of Washington-Tacoma) explores migrating women's struggles to remake and redefine themselves under oppressive conditions, contrasting the experiences of Russian-Jewish and Italian women who immigrated to New York City from the last third of the 19th century to the close of mass immigration in 1924.
