This study makes an important contribution to our knowledge of the life experiences of women in the 19th century, It delineates changes in society, as in the provision of education which led to the feminization of the teaching profession and the changes in religious practice. The book traces the increasing limitation in the lives of the elusive women of Irish society, whose poorer members were haunted by the spectres of poverty, the poorhouse and the pauper's grave.
