Getting There is the story of immigrant women surviving in and adapting to a new culture. The photostories provide a dramatic and visual reminder of the difficulties society places in our paths?even when it comes to something as seemingly easy as "just getting" to work or to a job interview.
Along with the photostories are short background essays on immigrant women and work and on the contradictions between advertising images and the lives of women. The book also contains a step-by-step introduction to "How the Photostories Were Made" and an activities and discussion guide.
The authors are community workers and activists committed to alternative forms of education.close this panel
