Entrepreneurs sought out independent hard-working farm women to help fill the labor void during the American Industrial Revolution, creating the largest gathering of young unmarried, unaccompanied women, who earned their own pay. Boston Brahmins, who bankrolled New England’s mills inadvertently, triggered new social forces that rippled across the country. Presented by author and lecturer Doug Stewart, who has written stories for the Smithsonian, National Wildlife, and others.
