Summary This is a study of the working women of Belgium from 1830 to 1914. Patricia Penn Hilden argues that the success of Belgium's industrial revolution was uniquely dependant on female labour. She examines the widespread participation of Belgian women in the labour market, and explores their role in the emergent politics of Belgium's working class
