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 will be for sale
