This is a study of textile employment for women and girls in 19th-century England. The author aims to describe the experience of factory employment and and community for 19th-century men and women and connect evidence concerning employment and family patterns to trace the practices of employers which helped to forge a male labour aristocracy. The book also discusses the process by which women were gradually marshalled into restricted areas of employment, and examines the implications for both family life and paid labour. The writings and activities of feminists of the time who challenged this pattern are also explored.
