Dr Alison Kay, Honorary Research Associate in the Department of History publishes book

Date: 19 May 2009

Historical female entrepreneurship explored - Dr Alison Kay, Honorary Research Associate in the Department of History has written a book examining the connections between Victorian women's enterprises, their womanhood and their homes. The Foundations of Female Enterprise: Enterprise, Home and Household in London, c.1800-1870 (Routledge; Taylor & Francis Group) examines the similarities and differences between the businesses of men and women in London and investigates the relationship between home, household headship and enterprise. Using trade cards, insurance records, trade directories, the census, memoirs etc, she examines the businesses themselves and notions of duty, honour and suitability in how women's ventures are represented by themselves and others and engages in a comparison of the interpretation of historical female entrepreneurship by contemporaries and historians in the UK, Europe and America.
