Why we love this
The English Gentlewoman by Flora Fraser. London: Barrie & Jenkins, 1987. First printing. A surprising history of the gradual emancipation of women in Britain, concentrating on the role of the Lady, who was prevented from proper work until very modern times. Initially focusing on strong-willed ladies who made it into the history of the nation, Fraser charts the devastating effects of the two World Wars on England and the final emergence of truly independent women.
