Working Women in Victorian Britain, 1850-1910: The diaries and letters of Arthur J. Munby (1828-1910) and Hannah Cullwick (1833-1909) from Trinity College, Cambridge

  • Munby, obsessed with the circumstances, habits and aspirations of working women, travelled Britain to collieries, farms, docks, and factories to seek out, interview, photograph, and describe them. This massively detailed written record describes these women and their places of work, their hours of work and wages. It includes excerpts from conversations concerning their views on male-female working relationships, industry and exploitation, child rearing, and marriage. Includes a guide to the microforms.
