Russian women of the nineteenth century are often thought of in their literary incarnations as the heroines of novels such as Anna Karenina and War and Peace  . In the final decades of the nineteenth century, Russia underwent the social and economic transformations that, centuries earlier, had given rise to urban culture in much of Western Europe. In the West, the commercial revolution and rise of a market economy had resulted in a critical mass of urban population that did not depend on the land.

Women were not considered responsible enough for those tasks. Nowadays, the vast majority of secretaries are female, and a male secretary is thought of as a strange thing. Until the 1800s women were highly represented in the healing and medical arts. However, once a formal schooling was required for the title, women were excluded as not having brainpower up to the task. This area is primarily staffed by males. In comparison, the bakery area is mostly women, and the path for promotion out of bakery is far more convoluted. There are not equal opportunities for both areas to grow and succeed. In all, while some of the examples were a little dated, all were interesting and relevant to the topic at hand.

Drawing on women’s own writing and cultural production, it presents women as agents of change as well as exploring cultural perceptions of women and the ways in which women have been represented by these discourses.

Recent historical work has shown that women have not been excluded completely from science and technology. It also questions the idea that technological transformations simply happen to women, showing them instead as struggling to shape and exercise some control over these. Rather than a monolithic interpretation of gender, male/female relationships have been, to use Ava Baron's phrase, 'multi-dimensional and internally inconsistent' (Baron, 1987).

This study focuses on the household, the most important unit of production in the 18th century. Hill examines the work done by the women of the household, not only in "housework" but also in agriculture and manufacturing, and explains what women lost as the household's independence as a unit of economic production was undermined.
