The textile industry that brought modernization to Japan was built upon and supported by the labor consciousness of young female workers. The purpose of this study is to inquire into factors what enhanced their labor consciousness to the higher level by examining their education in the broader sense such as their knowledge, work ethic, motivation, etc. Because there are few existing female workers, we changed the time and space and investigated the labor awareness of female workers in the current Asian countries using the oral history method. As a result, the following is concluded. 1) The labor consciousness of female workers during the period of the development of the textile industry in the Meiji era was characterized by their sense of obligation to support the industry and their family and by their hope of gaining a foothold through their work for their independence. 2)By the survey based on interviews of female workers during the Taisho and the Showa eras, it was found that those with a lower educational background have higher hope in the future. 3)Concerning the labor consciousness of current female workers in Asia, it was found that those with a lower educational background tend to have a stronger will to work due to their wish to realize their concrete dream for the future.
