Drawing on a wealth of archival material, primary and secondary sources, and on the oral testimonies of former pupils and staff, the book examines the following key themes: *the changing social class of women students *the colleges culture of femininity drawn from the family organization and social practices of the middle-class home *the conflicting public and private roles of the woman principal *the role of the college staff and the residential context of college life *women's sexuality *the last days of the womens colleges.Women in Teacher Training Colleges, 1900-1960 is an essential contribution to women's history and gives a unique insight into this neglected aspect of women's experiences in the twentieth century.
