Abstract: The Finnish Forest History Society carried out an extensive oral history project in Finland in 1999— 2002 under my guidance, interviewing more than a thousand people who once earned their livelihood in the forest trade. Because previous research had not paid due attention to women's work, we also wished to collect their recollections of the trade. Up to the 1980s, cooking and cleaning was the most important female occupation in the forest trade. These duties are the subject of this article.
