Women in Mill Villages


Author(s):
Abstract:
Women were an integral part of the textile mill workforce in the late 19th- and 20-centuries. Many were just off the farm and often found adjustment to mill life difficult. Jobs were demanding. Night shifts for mothers with children were equally hard. Women relied on older relatives to help with the home. Working conditions did not improve until after World War II.
