From the vantage point of our times, the notion of young women leaving school and parental homes for paid labour in cities fails to raise eyebrows. But the perfect ordinariness of such economic and demography patterns today should not dull our appreciation for the extraordinary impact of turn-of-the-century working girls on cities like Toronto. As tens of thousands of women in Toronto sought out and found alternative forms of employment, they forced their contemporaries to confront their deepest fears: the uncharted and turbulent waters of economic and social change.
