Amazon.com description: Product Description: On 27 November 1914, a monumental event in women's history occurred - the first female police officers (part of the Women Police Volunteers) went on duty in Grantham, Lincolnshire. The decision would quickly have an effect on female liberation. Suffragettes were behind the movement to see women on the beat. The Women Police Service was founded in 1914 in part because it was felt women in uniform would be better at deterring pimps and stopping girls from going into prostitution, but also because female campaigners wanted to take advantage of the First World War to push women into male work roles. Early policewomen were pioneers, but they faced great prejudice and hardship, often placed in vulnerable positions and left feeling isolated. Yet they were not so alone for across the country women were taking on roles traditionally reserved for men. 27 November 1914 was a turning point: it was the day the world changed.
