Born to Responsibility, Remembering New York’s Little Mothers
This is a beautiful account of how a society woman rallied her friends in 1890 to help a thoroughly neglected segment of the tenement poor — those little girls as young as 7 years old who were charged to look after their younger siblings while their mothers went to work in the factories. They were known as Little Mothers and their days were grim until these gallant women swept in and brought a little happiness into their lives. It is incredible what an impact a determined woman can make! Many historical photographs and information from primary sources are included.
