Lady Inspectors Summary

Lady Inspectors by Mary Drake McFeeley

In Victorian Britain, unskilled women workers, whether in factories, workshops or at home, were at the mercy of their employers. The lady inspectors were pioneers in such activities as: travelling alone in London slums, seedy provincial manufacturing towns and remote rural areas; appearing in the role of prosecutor in the masculine world of the British courtroom; and gathering and interpreting information to support new legislation. This is the story of their occupation, of their adventures, struggles, successes and failures.
