An Unrecognized Contribution
Women and Their Work in 19th-Century Toronto
by Elizabeth Gillan Muir
Women in nineteenth-century Toronto contributed to the city’s commerce and were owners of stores, factories, brickyards, market gardens, hotels, and taverns; as musicians, painters, and writers, they were a large part of the city’s cultural life; and as nurses, doctors, religious workers, and activists, they strengthened the city’s safety net for those who were most in need. Their stories are told in this wide-ranging collection of biographies.
