Journal of the Dublin Statistical Society Vol.III, Part XX, 1862
The subject of the employment of women has been so long and so
frequently discussed, and all its arguments have been so recently considered
at the meeting of the Social Science Association in this city,
August, 1861, that I shall not occupy the time of the meeting in
proving facts which are no longer denied, and demonstrating what
are now admitted to be truisms. I shall assume the advisability of
not limiting educated women to obtaining subsistence by the one
overstocked profession of governess; and also that the sex of a
woman, though it may be a misfortune, is not a crime. With these
humble assumptions I shall briefly lay before the Society what has
been done in Ireland with regard to women's employment.
