File: Local Government

Scope and Content

The file consists primarily of publications of the Women's Local Government Society but there are also: publications of the Women's Municipal Party; a copy of "questions sent by M. Buisson of the Chamber of Deputies, Paris, to Mrs Lees, ex-Mayor of Oldham, and her replies to the same"; and lists of women returned at the Town Council Elections of 1913 and the County Council elections of 1919.

Coming from the I.W.S.A. Headquarters Office, the file was almost certainly compiled during the period 1913-1919 but the publication dates of some of its contents are earlier, dating from 1908 onwards.

Language: includes 7 pieces written partially in French.


There was no apparent original order; dated material from 1908-1914 has been placed in order of date of publication, followed by undated material from this period. The file concludes with material from 1919.
