ABSTRACT
The paper discusses findings from the fieldwork "Women in Mining Communities and Social Change," which was carried out in the summers of 1991 and 1992. The aim of the study was to examine the changing role of women in mining communities through three generations of women within the Wakefield Metropolitan District in West Yorkshire, England. Some of the trends in female paid employment over three generations are outlined. The current economic position of women in non-traditional mining communities is evaluated.
