"When filmmaker Marlene Booth became a working mother, she searched for families for whom working outside the home while raising children was a way of life. She found three families--one Mexican-American, one Polish-American, and one African-American--who had labored as migrant workers, sharecroppers, waitresses, nurse's aides, secretaries, and teachers. The Double Burden celebrates these women as they tell for the first time their stories of love, labor, sacrifice, and tremendous pride."--Container.
