Most of them not only experienced the uncertainties of marriage and the potential dangers of childbirth but also took part in making sure that the needs of their families were met.

How women actually fulfilled their numerous responsibilities differed, however. Age, location, marital status, class, and societys changing expectations of women all had a direct impact on what was expected of them, what they did, and how they did it. Considering womens work within the social and historical context, Errington shows that the complexity of colonial society cannot be understood unless the roles and work of women in Upper Canada are taken into account.
