Female proprietors are one of the fastest-growing participants in the commercial economy. Between 1850 and 1920, female proprietors operated small-scale businesses concentrated in the apparel, laundry, accommodations, beauty, and retail industries. Focusing on female business owners in San Francisco, this book demonstrates the commercial behavior of women proprietors and how they confronted several challenges at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth centuries.
