Womens Liberation in Labour History - A Case Study from Nottingham, by Jo O'Brien

Published by Spokesman, 15 pages. Small booklet c.20cm by 12cm (N4039P1)

This booklet provides a brief assessment  of the economic, social and political roles of women and children in working class life in Nottingham and elsewhere in the 19th century, and covers such areas as child labour, working conditions, female militancy, and chartism.

From the booklet's conclusion: A people without a history is a dispossessed people. Do women know anything about their recent history? Are they aware that female hands ripped coal, dug roads and worked looms? That female will and courage helped push the working class towards whatever decencies of life it has now? Women have no more sense of their own history than the American Negro had before the Black liberation movement challenged the lie of black non-history.... Women are now questioning the historical lie about themselves. It means they want their own present and future too

Condition of the booklet is generally good. The covers have one or two very minor scuffs, but the staple spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
