very interesting descriptions of the life of poor women in general----and specifically sicilian women. an idea she poses is that disadvantaged women, the world over, are said to live n patriarchal societies but for the most part the men are not there. they are working in other countries. and if they are there, they are unemployed. i often think that in indiginous cultures the women did all the work. the men went hunting once in a while usually unsuccessfully, made war and spent their"free" time stoned.
