Summary:
"In what ways did gender influence the shape of poverty, and of poor women's work, in Victorian England? This book explores the problem in the context of nineteenth-century Northumberland, examining urban and rural conditions for women, poor relief debates and practices, philanthropic activity, working-class cultures, and 'protective' intervention in women's employment."--Jacket.
