University Press of Florida

This chapter focuses on the cooperative movement and cooperative societies at Barrhead, Ellen Dawson's birthplace. Despite having to cope with the grim aspects of life, Barrhead was a community that included individuals from both the middle and working classes. Both classes actively sought solutions to the social problems that faced their community and their society. The best example of the local reform movements was the Barrhead Cooperative. One of the most significant aspects of the cooperative movement at this time was the social-reform efforts directed toward enhancing the role of women in society.

Keywords:   cooperative movement, Barrhead, middle class, working class, working women, cooperative society
