Abstract [en]

In the article, the author highlights the working conditions of Swedish women at the largest female work place in Minnesota in the late 1910s. The Americanization process during the First World War, where European women were made into Americans, is also analyzed. The Northwestern Knitting company organized evening classes in English and Citizenship, and those who fulfilled the classes were officially recognized as true Americans.
