They worked hard to create happy lives for their families but often had few choices in education, jobs, and marriage. 19th Century Girls and Women reveals the positive and negative aspects of both working and wealthy-class lives in the 1800s. Colorful pictures and illustrations portray the daily lives of women including:
• household chores
• social values, tastes, and events
• immobilizing clothing
• health hazards
• mini-biographies of Elizabeth Blackwell, Emily Stowe, Susan La Flesche, and Mary Ann Shadd
