We Kept Our Towns Going: Phyllis Wong Presents on her 2022 Gossard Book
This is a recording of the program presented in our gathering hall.
From the early 1900s to the ‘70s, two active factories produced women’s undergarments right here in Marquette County. The Gossard factories of Gwinn and Ishpeming employed primarily women, known as the Gossard Girls. These hard working women make up Phyllis Wong’s new book, a look at family stories told through dozens of interviews with surviving workers and families. Hear the author tell of her journey in writing this relentlessly researched narrative of local women’s work equality. Books are for sale at our gift store.
After this $5 purchase, you will receive a PDF that contains the link to the program.
