Girls and Women in the Que­bec Cot­ton Tex­tile In­dus­try, 1881–1951

By Gail Cuthbert Brandt

Girls and women were es­sen­tial to in­dus­tri­al­iza­tion in Canada, par­tic­u­larly in the tex­tile in­dus­try, con­cen­trated in Que­bec. Through the Mill is an in­valu­able con­tri­bu­tion to fem­i­nist labour his­tory and one of the few stud­ies to an­a­lyze the lives of women in­dus­trial work­ers here. Eighty-four women tex­tile work­ers in­ter­viewed in the early ’80s tell the story in their own words.
