Daughters of Toil: Working Women in Nineteenth Century New York City

19th-century Americans celebrated the domestic ideal and most assumed that women belonged at home. In New York and in other cities, however, many women went out to work. This lecture will discuss the types of jobs that women performed, the challenges that they faced, and their efforts to organize to improve their conditions. Then, as now, differences of race, class, and ethnicity shaped women's economic opportunities. Presented by Lara Vapnek, Professor of History at St. John's University and author of Elizabeth Gurley Flynn: Modern American Revolutionary and Breadwinners: Working Women and Economic Independence, 1865-1920.
