Abstract
This article explores women’s work in Austria-Hungary at the turn of the 20th century and the use of law in defining or, more properly, limiting the occupational and economic choices available to women. Drawing on materials held in the Romanian National Archives, this article presents a case study of women’s work in and around the Austro-Hungarian town of Máramarossziget, now the Romanian town of Sighetul Marmației, in the early 1900s.
