This interdisciplinary collection explores the relationships between women and built space in England between the 1870s and the 1940s. Included are East End rent collectors, tenants, diarists and correspondents, committee and Guild members, provincial and metropolitan exhibitors, social reformers, activists, and homemakers. Taken together, these essays dramatically expand our conception of the scope and effectiveness of women's contributions, both to the creation of modern built environments, and to the development of discourses associated with them.
