Über diesen Titel
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.Book Description:
This is the story of an English middle-class family and their fortunes. Centre-stage are the women members, Anne Jemima Clough and her niece, Blanche Athena Clough, who helped replace a model of education for girls which kept them in the home with one which gave them access to systematic study and eventually to professional employment. Faith, Duty and the Power of Mind shows what it might mean to lose Christian faith in nineteenth and early twentieth century England, and is an unusually attractive and distinctive contribution to modern British history.
