In “The Lowell Textile Workers”, Harriet Hanson Robinson describes her experiences working in Massachusetts textile mills of the 1830s.
What kind of women came to work in the mills? Why did they do so?
What were millworking conditions like, according to Harriet? (Give specific examples of her daily schedule, salary, etc.)
Finally, describe the reasons behind the workers’ strike of 1836. Do you agree with Harriet’s statement that mill work represented a “new era that was about to dawn for all women-kind”? Why or why not?
