Singled Out

How Two Million British Women Survived Without Men After the First World War

Virginia Nicholson

From the mill-girl turned activist to the debutante turned archaeologist, from the first woman stockbroker to the "business girls" and the Miss Jean Brodies, this book memorializes a generation of young women who were forced, by four of the bloodiest years in human history, to stop depending on men for their income, their identity, and their future happiness. Indeed, Singled Out pays homage to this remarkable generation of women who, changed by war, in turn would change society.
