Abstract:

"The Belles of New England is the story of one group of pioneers in the American labor movement - the thousands of women who left New England farm towns to work in the textile cities that sprang up in the region in the early nineteenth century. Their goal was to achieve personal independence, their mission social justice. At a time when women had no political influence, they battled powerful mill owners for fair pay and decent working conditions."--Jacket.
