Investigating the radicalizing effects of gender in the Lancashire cotton mills between 1880 and 1914, this provocative work challenges the received wisdom that women were passive victims of a sexually segregated workplace. Instead it brings to the fore the proactive efforts of female workers to secure workplace equality, the successes of which led them to question and challenge their assigned position in wider society.
