Employment of women in Ireland
Citation:Gibson, Edward, 'Employment of women in Ireland'. - Dublin: Dublin Statistical Society, Vol.III, Part XX, 1862, pp138-143
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.
