Further Details

In the publisher’s “New Democracy” series. Pictorial dustjacket, mushroom-coloured cloth-covered boards, gilt titles to spine and front boards, 127 pages. With 13 pictorial charts in colour designed by the Isotype Institute and 65 photographs. Sections are: The Scope of Women’s Work, The Work Women Do, Woman’s Dual Role, Women and Work in the Post-war World. Tackling questions that we would hardly pause to ask now- “What types of work can women do?”, “Ought Women to get the same pay as men?”, “is it ‘unfair’ for a married woman to make a living?” and so on. Condition: Dust jacket chipped and worn. Boards worn and bumped, with traces of rust to the front board from the same paper clip that has left a stain to the front flap and creasing to the front free end paper. Light spotting to the end papers.
