Casebook Review:

This volume examines the challenges poor women confronted in communities, labor markets, and at home. It analyzes these women's experiences within the households, neighborhoods, local labor markets, and gender definitions that shaped their lives.. "The study uses a variety of sources, including local newspapers, Parliamentary reports, materials from local history collections, Charles Booth's notebooks, and working-class autobiographies. The richest new source employed in the study is the manuscript census of 1881 for three London neighborhoods, Somers Town, Lisson Grove, and Globe Town. The work addresses current issues in women's history and women's studies, such as the relationship between women's paid employment and male power and the multifaceted causes of women's subordination in working-class families.
