19th-Century Rural Kansas Women at Work.
Although most women of the late 1800s tended children, managed family gardens, butchered livestock and game, and canned and preserved winter rations, some women also augmented their family incomes by bartering agricultural products in nearby town, working as domestics and teaching. Presented by Isaias McCaffery through the Kansas Humanities Council Speakers Bureau.
