This introductory chapter presents the methodological and theoretical framework of the book. It points out that despite the centrality of England's young women worker to literature, social investigations, and the press — her expanding employment opportunities and social independence frequently cited as symbols of modernity — this book is the first to bring her into the historical limelight. In doing so, it draws on oral history, autobiography, and earnings and employment data.
