This volume, issued by the Museum of London, contains proceedings of the 1994 WHAM (Women's History & Museums) Conference on the substantial part that women have played in industry & technology from the earliest times. The essays look not only at current work, but also examine the role of museums in presenting & interpreting the evidence of their labors. The book contains essays by over 35 contributors who have drawn on the archives of large & small museums, among them the British Museum & the Forge Mill Needle Museum. Their subjects range from women toolmakers in the Bronze Age to women, work & the community in the Isle of Dogs today. Heavy & light industries are discussed as well as production from the home base.
