Often found hiding in attics and lurking in basements are two of the most revolutionary machines to come out of the 1800s. Typewriters and sewing machines helped change the role of women as they entered the working world with new skills. The machines share complex relationships with women, their societal roles and their voices.

The pairing of machines dating from 1875 to 1975 shows the evolution of technological advances and material design of these working tools. The juxtaposition also provokes questions about their role in history and helps tell the stories of the women who used them.
