mobility than had existed previously. Throughout her book, Chenut is interested in the ways that gender contributes to our understanding of working class culture. She studies the division of labor between men and women, its evolution, and the role of women in the working-class community as millworkers, homeworkers, consumers and strikers. Women's pay lagged well behind men's throughout this period and, as unemployment benefits were generally only given to the head of the household, they had little access to these. Because of their continued exclusion from suffrage, women workers' concerns went largely unaddressed, even as they figured in greater and greater numbers as workers in the textile industry. The Fabric of Gender combines meticulous research with stimulating analyses of contemporary documents. It is an invaluable contribution to our understanding of working-class culture in the Third Republic. Hart, Kathleen. Revolution and Women's Autobiography in Nineteenth-Century France.
