Abstract

Author purports to fill a lacuna in the gendered analysis of waste-related reform efforts. Article illustrates how women reformers used municipal housekeeping to influence garbage collection and disposal, especially in and around poor neighborhoods of Chicago. Jane Addams and Mary McDowell were the two most important leaders in this movement. - (SLD)
