Description:
Lucy Deane was from an upper class military family and was appointed in 1893, aged 28, by Herbert Asquith; then the Home Secretary, and she was sent across the British Isles, to the dismay of male factory inspectors, to inspect and report on the conditions of women workers. She and her four colleagues had no precedents and no training, and Lucy's up-market family were horrified at the prospect of their daughter embarking on such a vocation. This book profiles the trailblazing life of Lucy Deane, one of the earliest exponents of women's social issues at the time.
