Women in Factories: A New Business Problem

This ad for plumbing fixtures is from the May 18, 1918 Literary Digest. With men off fighting World War I, more and more women were working in factories. This ad claims that these women needed better bathroom facilities and showed off a washroom in the Harvard & Dennison Building in Cleveland, Ohio.

Women in Factories: A New Business Problem

In larger numbers than ever before, women and girls are invading American industries and taking the places of men. War has made it necessary, and this condition creates a new problem for the heads of industrial plants. One result is a double emphasis upon factory sanitation. Women workers require and deserve every possible consideration. Conditions in the toilet and wash rooms of places where many are employed demand careful attention. Our book on this subject, "Factory Sanitation," will be of help to you. Sent free on request.
