Ladies Can't Climb Ladders

Jane Robinson / Karen Cass
The Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act of 1919 was one of the most significant pieces of legislation in modern Britain. It should have marked a social revolution opening the doors of the traditional professions to women who had worked so hard during the War and welcoming them inside as equals. But what really happened? Ladies Can’t Climb Ladders focuses on the lives of pioneering women forging careers in the fields of medicine law academia architecture engineering and the church. In her startling study into the public and private worlds of these unsung heroines Jane Robinson sheds light on their desires and ambitions and how family and society responded to this emerging class of working women.
