Description - Women's Work, 1840-1940 by Elizabeth Roberts

This volume addresses the contentious issues surrounding women's work during a century of social upheaval. Elizabeth Roberts focuses on working-class women and their work--full time and part-time, paid and unpaid, outside and inside the home--examining men's attitudes to women's work, women's connections with trade unions, a "family wage," and unequal pay and status. Women's Work is a unique overview of an expanding field of social and economic history, and Dr. Roberts' survey of the available literature provides a useful guide to further reading.
