"The Monotony of Labor" - The Literary World

Seldom have we read a more interesting, or, in its way, a more valuable book than this "The Woman Who Toils," by Bessie and Marie Van Vorst. These two women, of the so-called upper class, became factory hands for a brief season. They sought "jobs," got them, and worked at them in a Pittsburgh factory, a small mill town in New York, at clothing making in Chicago, at shoemaking in Lynn, and in a Southern cotton mill.

An unsigned but very positive review of "The Woman Who Toils" by the sisters Bessie and Marie Van Vorst, praising them for undertaking to experience all different types of labor firsthand.
