DOUIE, Vera. The Lesser Half : A Survey of the Laws, Regulations and Practices introduced during the Present War which embody discrimination against women. [Foreword by M.I. Corbett Ashby]. London: Women's Publicity Planning Association, 14 Dartmouth Street, [n.d. - early-1940s]. Pp. (2),[3]-100. Small 8vo, printed red and white card covers with black lettering to front and spine. "This brilliantly written survey of the war-time disabilities of women should be a best seller. The humour, and the tolerance of human weakness (especially masculine weakness) which it displays, is the more attractive, because the long catalogue of handicaps imposed on women might well havejustified a tone of bitterness. The first impression, on reading this book let, is how sadly human beings lack the imagination to understand the problems of those who live side by side with them; the second, how hard the struggle to develop political equality into social and economic equality." - from Ashby's preface. Front inner hinge tender, some browning to leaves, elsevery good. 35.00
