Voices from Our Industrial Past: Women

Radio 4 again offers some valuable background for ECON2547 students, with Professor Emma Griffin of UEA, whose current focus is “a history of working-class life during the industrial revolution”. This programme  “examines the lives of working women during the industrial revolution, through a rich body of neglected sources – working-class autobiography”, offering accounts of first hand experience in the factories and the transformative consequences for women of the industrial revolution.
