HERITAGE OPEN DAYS: Girl Power - Women in the Mills

Friday, September 13, 2019

1.30pm - 3pm.

This talk is free as part of Heritage Open Days

Women and children made up the majority of the mill workforce, but what was life like for them in this newly mechanised industry as they worked together in this way?

This talk explores working life for women in industry during the 18th century and their changing place in society.
