About the Author:

Paula Bartley is Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Wolverhampton. Among her other books are The Changing Role of Women (1996) and Votes for Women (1998).

Review:

'Bartleys study is a very welcome addition to the historiography of moral reform and sexual regulation.' – Social History Society

'In this meticulously researched book, Paula Bartley offers the first national study of the work of moral reformers in late nineteenth-century ... her considerable achievement lies in her abilty to demonstrate that ... there is still much more to be said on the subject on nineteenth-century prostitution.'History

'One of the stregnths of the book is its detailed analysis of the intersection of contemporary class, gender, and religious ideologies in the motives of those involved in the reform of "the fallen" ... The work also provides new insight into the day-to-day running of the range of institutions set up to deal with women deemed to be "fallen".'Social History of Medicine
