The Lowell Offering
About The Lowell Offering
In 1840 in Lowell, MA, a group of factory workers began publishing the world’s first magazine written solely by women; it was called "The Lowell Offering." This is the story of the magazine’s editor, Harriet Farley, and a labor activist, Sarah Bagley – and the rise and fall of their friendship, the magazine, and Lowell’s “Mill Girl” culture.
