Actually, I was a bit disappointed. Ehrenreich lived the life and stepped into the shoes of these women..... but she never had to face their fear. The day to day worry about where the money was coming from..... the real fear that accompanies having no money. Ehrenreich cheated by having a back-up plan..... we see jobs, the lack of pay, and a bit of the struggle, but we don't see the fear.
