In honor of Women’s History Month, local author and historian Doug Steward will discuss the Lowell Mill Girls–young women from New England farms who became the labor force that powered New England’s textile mills in the first half of the nineteenth century. He will also explore the workers’ links to the early American labor and women’s right movements.
