                                                                                                                                    On International Women’s Day 2019, LSE Library launched its programme around Women at Work to commemorate 100 years since the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act. This Act removed the legal barriers of sex or marriage from official appointments and professional occupations, such as the legal profession.

                                                                                                                                    The Women’s Library Collection in LSE Library is a rich source of information for and was formed out of the struggles encountered by women working in the professions after 1919. Our Women at Work programme began in Spring 2019 with a focus on areas of work that have only relatively recently appointed women to senior positions.

                                                                                                                                    It is followed by the exhibition The Sacred Year 1919: Women and the Professions from May to September 2019, at the end of which we will be hosting the Women’s History Network Conference.

                                                                                                                                    A shorthand writers banner
