Most guilds had no women members. The seamstresses had their own guild.

The more unskilled the work someone did, the more tightly it was controlled. Commenting on the work situation of laborers employed by the VOC in Amsterdam, Schijf and van Woerkom note their lack of rights and the fact that they could be fired at any time.
