Abstract

Maine islands depend on women and their organizations, from health councils to Legion auxiliaries to craft fairs. Lengthy article profiles organizations like Islesboro's Second Baptist Sewing Society, Frenchboros' lobster festival, the fairs of Swan's Island, and Ladies Aid of Matinicus. Some old-timers wonder if the long tradition of independent island women will be carried down to the next generation.
