    First published in 1941, the original blurb read: “Women have been among the worst sufferers not only in war-time but in every ill-organized time of peace. The vast “slave class” on whose backs the great civilizations of the past have been carried has always included them. What is their true share in the world’s work? What are they going to make of the new world? Can slave labour be replaced by machine labour? Can the machine-age in which the machine has too often mastered the human being be replaced by one in which humanity masters the machine? What will be the scope and character of women’s partnership in the new world? These are some of the questions women have to face and try to answer, and with which Dr. Maude Royden deals brilliantly in this challenging book.” Today it can be read and enjoyed in its historical context.
