Women in the Workforce

Let Life Be Yours video clips (1981)
For many women in the early 20th century, education and employment were dependent on the socio-economic status of their families. Employment as clerical workers, domestics, saleswomen, or factory workers was common, and college education was often limited to women from wealthy families. These six interviews of working women were compiled by the now-defunct Oral History Center in Cambridge, Mass. in 1981. The women discuss their lives and what led them to their work. From The Oral History Center records.
