ABOUT THIS BOOK
Ardis Cameron focuses on the textile workers' strikes of 1882 and 1912
in this examination of class and gender formation as drawn from the experience and language of the working-class neighborhoods of Lawrence. She shows clearly that the working women who unionized and fought for equality were considered the "worst sort" because they challenged both economic and sexual hierarchies, providing alternative models for turn-of-the-century women.
