Women have long been recognized as the backbone of coalmining comunities, supporting their men. Less well known is the role they played as the industry developed, working underground or at the pithead. However, in 1842, women were banned from the mines when a report revealed that they worked alongside naked men. In this book, Denise Bates draws on contemporary sources to examine the social, economic and political factors affecting 19th century female coalminers.
