Product Overview

This illustrated study tells the tale of a middle-class English family's fortunes. The experiences of two women--Anne Jemima Clough and her niece, Blanche Athena Clough--reveal the particular vulnerability of middle-class women to economic changes. As first and fourth principals of Newnham College, Cambridge, their lives and work enact the revolution in women's education which allowed women to finally enter professional occupations and construct their own economic lifelines. Anne Jemima's brother and Blanche Athena's father was the poet, Arthur Hugh Clough, who lost his Christian faith painfully and publicly at the end of the 1840s.
