This chapter focuses on the women working in the textile mills of Ghent and Vervies, Belgium during the period from the 19th century. During his period, textiles was the country's fastest growing industry. Thus, government officials paid much attention to textile manufacture and their concern was that production remained uninterrupted by labour unrest. To address this concern, the government made a series of investigations into the condition of textile workers.
