Housing accommodation and the rent paid for it are of the utmost importance to working women, and that they have taken a keen interest in these matters has been evidenced by their views expressed at many housing Conferences held in different parts of the country, and by the issue of pamphlets setting forth the requirements of a working woman’s home. In these home the children are born, brought up, and are nursed through their illnesses. All the family life is lived with in its four walls, and within them the woman does the washing, the cleaning, the cooking ,the mending, and the housekeeping, with its bewildering problem of making both ends meet, besides looking after the needs of each member of the family. It is little wonder, therefore, that the Central Committee and the Sectional Councils of the Women's Co-operative Guild, representing 52,000 wives and mothers, have passed a resolution declaring that the housing of the people at rents within their capacity is a matter of vital national concern,and that if any improvement of real worth is to be made, it is absolutely necessary for the Government to tackle the question on a large scale for the whole of the country.
