Josephine Butler to Albert Rutson

Scope and Content

Two typed copies of letter and part of letter. Written from [Liverpool]. Hopes to meet Miss Wolstenholme, Miss King and Miss Boucherett on Tuesday 15th to consult about trades. Asks him if he can join them and then return with her to Liverpool. They cannot do much to overcome the 'inefficiency' argument against the employment of women without securing education for women and technical training for particular trades. They must try to enlist the sympathies of working men in this. What she wants is more information.
