Working Women, Literary Ladies The Industrial Revolution and Female Aspiration


This book explores the simultaneous entry of working-class women in the United States into wage-earning factory labour and into opportunities for mental and literary development. It traces the hopes and tensions generated by expectations of their gender and class from the first New England operatives in the early nineteenth century to immigrant sweatshop workers in the early twentieth.
