Red River Settlement--Roles of the Women

posted by .

What jobs did women do in the daily life of red river settlement? How does this relate to life for women colonists in the wilderness of upper Canada?

Women and men worked side by side. The women helped in the grain harvest, using sickles to cut the wheat by hand. They also processed all the wool used in the community, including the cleaning, carding, and spinning tasks that took a great deal of time. The men were able to rest, but not the women. They had to bake bannock for the next day’s meals, and moreover the families were large, and the women had as many as fifteen children, despite the shortage of health care.

I extremely need help with the second question.

    One big difference between the life described in this site and life in Upper Canada was the climate. Georgia is much warmer than Upper Canada. Other than that, much of their lives were the same.
