The Sex Disqualification Act of 1919 was one of the most significant pieces of legislation in modern Britain. It should have marked a social revolution, opening the doors of traditionally male professions to women who had worked hard during the War, welcoming them as equals. But what really happened? Ladies Can’t Climb Ladders focuses on the lives of pioneering women in the fields of medicine, law, academia, architecture, engineering and the church. It’s a study into the public and private worlds of these unsung heroines, and sheds light on their desires and ambitions, and how family and society responded to this emerging class of working women.
