Woman in a Man's World: Pioneering Professional Women of the Twentieth Century

This is the first in a planned series of books, based on interviews conducted for the National Life Story Collection. It brings together the personal accounts of ten women from the generation between the suffragettes and contemporary feminism. From Helen Brook, founder of the Brook Advisory Centres, to Betty Boothroyd, Speaker in the House of Commons, they represent a small but determined number of pioneering professional women.
