Working Americans 1880-2005 Volume VI: Women at Work is divided into 13 chapters, each covering a decade from 1880-2005. The lives of three to five working women is profiled in each chapter. You will learn about their annual income and household budgets, life at home and work, community involvement, prices of the time and cost of living, working conditions, social activities, and much more. Beginning with the life of a maid in 1890 and a store clerk in 1900 ending with the life and times of the modern working women, this text captures the struggle, strengths and changing perception of the American woman at work.
