Stephanie Lezama History 2010 Section 04 VSA #6 1. Nancy Cott tells us that unmarried women’s work started off as helping out with the work in their household and some would even work in their father’s store. Then it changed to their work being in mills where they would get sent away from home and they would get paid to earn money for their family. For married women, their work differed from having to do daily household work, making products for their family and some to sell, and caring for the children to focusing solely on raising the children and not on any product making to sell. 2. Cott gives us a lot of evidence to make clearly show the differences. On page 248, she gives us diary entries from some unmarried women to show us what type of work they would do. Sally Ripley is an example; she is a daughter to a store owner and she wrote, “…I am again entrusted with the charge of the Store.” Another entry from a mother, Hannah Hickok, wrote,” The girls… have been very busy spinning this spring.” This shows us that the unmarried women would stay at home and do the housework for their family to make necessary products for them or to sell. She then gives an example, on page 249, of the change by using Emily Chubbuck’s story. Cott wrote, “…she went to work in 1828, at the age of 11, splicing rolls in a woolen factory.” Emily Chubbuck was sent to work away from home to make money in the factories which was significantly different from making products for their personal use at home. On page 251, Cott gives a good example

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
