Making a Living, Making a Difference offers an eye-opening perspective on what men and women in early modern European society did all day. Based on an innovative method and a large data collection of everyday activities, the authors show the ways in which gender and work were linked in early modern society by revealing household, unpaid, and hidden, as well as paid, labor.
