    One thought on “The Lowell Offering: Writings by New England Mill Women (1840-1945)”

    1. Interesting writings about the Lowell Girls. Some of the writings were all the same. If you are not familiar with the Lowell Mills and that era, I suggest you check this book out.

    2. i read this in college for a class in 19th century history. very interesting. having just read "sex wars" and now reading a biography of victoria woodhull, i may just have to find my copy of "the lowell offering" and read it again.

    3. pretty eye-opening, and sometimes heartbreaking first accounts. I wouldn't have read it if I wasn't working on a musical about these women.
