Title

The History of Trade Unionism among Women in Boston.

Description

A brief historical overview of the relationship between unionism and working women in Boston. This approach attempts to identify the causes for the wage and employment disparities of working women in comparison to working men, and therefore suggesting this inequality as the central reason for Boston’s working women link with unionism.

Additionally, the booklet touches upon a handful of various labor unions organized exclusively by working women that lived and operated within the city of Boston during the turn of the century. 

These three pages represent an excerpt of a larger work. The entire 33-page publication may be read through HathiTrust.org.
