Illustrated by Cover art. Pamphlet. Good+ with no dust jacket. Item #12835

1/2" tear in fore-edge margin of some text pages, light creasing, light rub, light edgewear, otherwise light wear. Solid paperback stapled pamphlet. ; Undated, circa early 1910s. Cover art has small A over M logo in top right corner. Short essay on the lack of progress of women in business due to social pressure to value marriage over work, and a passive attitude to their workplace. Brereton sold the Lineatime Copyholder, and found difficulty in having women office-workers accept changes. Surprisingly, his wife, Helen May Rowland, was a leading humorist of their time, writing a column in the New York World newspaper, Reflections of a Bachelor Girl and authoring books on the foibles of men, women, marriage and relationships. An uncommon, revealing glimpse at social attitudes about women in the workforce. ; 24 pages.
