Overview


A study of working women in Scotland in the late 1900s, this book uncovers the patterns of employment, involvement in and relationship to trade unions, and the forms of workplace resistance and struggles in which these women engaged. Focusing particularly on women working in Dundee's jute industry, Gordon integrates labor and gender history, which challenges many assumptions about the organizational apathy of women workers and the inevitable division between workplace and domestic ideologies. This book makes an important contribution to current historiographical debate over the sexual division of labor, working-class consciousness, domestic ideologies, and to the history of women in Scotland.
