    Excerpt from Bulletin of the American Academy of Medicine, Vol. 14: 1913

    It would, however, be quite beyond the scope of this paper to enumerate the various occupations of women at the present time or consider the conditions under which their work is done, except in a few instances.

    The invention and introduction of the sewing machine in the early sixties made a great change in the work of sewing women. Not that they did less of this class of work, but that the sewing machine determined the movement of the sewing industry to the shop and the factory, and soon after the sweat - shop developed to large proportions.

    Concerning stenographers, bookkeepers and others employed in private offices, investigations have not been and could not well be made, in regard to their health conditions except such as individual physicians might make with their patients. Those thus engaged are usually well treated and are a fortunate class of the women wage-earners. The fact that they are skilled workers and their number limited insures them better wages and per manency of employment. The bookkeeper or stenographer is not compelled to feel that there are several others waiting at the gate who could do her work equally well and who are willing to do it for less. This alone should be a lesson to women wage earners in the advantages of special training to fit them for work. The advantage to a woman of an assured position cannot be stated in dollars and cents, for it means in a large measure that peace of mind that passeth understanding and raises somewhat the level of the individual life. It adds also to the stability of the employer's business and saves him from the degrading practice of playing the unemployed against the necessities of his faithful workers.
