Abstract

The article addresses the problem of the changing of social roles of women in Silesia. This is a special category, because for many years Silesian women have been stereotyped as inactive miners' wives. The article shows the evolution of these roles since the mid-nineteenth century, when industrialization began in the Silesia region, until modern times. The analysis was conducted on the basis of materials and studies of historians and sociologists focusing on Silesia. The position of social roles of women in Silesia have been changing gradually. Currently, professional work is written in the biographies of women. Based on the results of the research conducted by the author, the place of work in the lives of women will be shown.

Keywords
