Harriet Robinson, “Early Factory Labor in New England”
What are two ways that the market revolution affected women’s lives in the United States?
In what ways did women’s lives improve during this time period? In what ways might their lives have become worse?
What can we learn from the memoir about workers’ rights – what experiences did Robinson have that promoted the organization of workers for better wages and working conditions?
The primary sources assigned for this week and discussed in class also included “An Account at Lowell.” Why might Robinson’s memoir be considered a more trustworthy source than “An Account of Lowell? What does Robinson’s memoir tell about the time period that “An Account of Lowell” does not?
Are there any limitations to using the memoir as a primary source for understanding the market revolution?
