Can Any Mother Help Me?

by Jenna Bailey
£8.99   paperback  Faber and Faber (2012)

Can Any Mother Help Me? by Jenna Bailey When, in 1935, a young woman wrote this letter to the women's magazine Nursery World women from all over the country wrote back expressing similar frustrations.
These women were educated and ambitious but many of their careers had been cut short by marriage. They were full of ideas and opinions but had nowhere to express them. So they decided to start a private magazine.
The Cooperative Correspondence Club was to be a bi-monthly publication made up of articles written by the members on subjects close to their heart.
Jenna Bailey has brought together this intimate and moving collection of personal stories following an extraordinary group of women.
