Old Family Photos of Women in the Workforce
Posted by Maureen

Jeanine Black saw the post How to Learn About Working Women in Old Photos and sent me two images of women in her family. It's a fitting end to Women's History Month.



In about 1909, her 15-year-old paternal grandmother, Louse (first on the left) worked in a Brockton, Mass., shoe factory. Louise's mother, Louise, is the first woman on the right. The family immigrated from Canada to Brockton in 1895 once Louise's husband found a job.  

Her other image is more recent.



It depicts her maternal grandmother, Augusta (second from right, first woman looking at the camera). It was taken in 1962 in Gloucester, Mass., where she worked in the garment industry. Jeanine even has her International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union membership card!

Augusta immigrated from Madeira, Portugal, at 18. Decorative handwork on fabric is well-known in Portugal and it looks like she found a job doing similar work at Vita Creations.

These photos not only document the working lives of these two women, they provide Jeanine with information she didn't have. Her paternal grandmother died before Jeanine was born. Augusta didn't talk about her time in the factory. It was only when Jeanine found that color photo and membership card that she learned more about her grandmother's life.

While it's wonderful to find photographs of men and women working, they aren't as common as other types of paper documentation about employment. In Jeanine's case it was a membership card, but it could be a work badge, a pass, a pay stub or an account book.

    Women have the favorable position that dissimilar to the protection business, Help with Essay it's illicit for bosses to measurably oppress them. Measurably is a great deal more probable a business will devote a ton of occupation preparing to a lady, just to have here leave or demand time off than it is for a male, yet they shouldn't consider that genuine distinction.

    I'm a solitary lady without any flat mates, so I must choose the option to do all the housework, regardless of having an all day work. Furthermore, as a great many people, I used to despise it. I'd given the dishes a chance to heap up or abstain from hauling out the vacuum more clean. buy assignment uk Be that as it may, I began taking a gander at things from an alternate perspective. Did I appreciate living in a pen of a house? Obviously not. I despised it! I appreciate having my house be perfect. I appreciate slithering into clean sheets. I appreciate not apologizing for the condition of my home when organization drops by.
