ABSTRACT
Between 1898 and 1912 numerous newspapers published expos�s and editorials about the conditions of women's work in diverse trades and lobbied for the enactment of protective labour legislation; these papers spanned the political spectrum. This article examines how two significant left-wing papers, Robert Blatchford's Clarion and Labour's first daily newspaper, the Daily Citizen, handled these issues. The former supported government protection for women poisoned by their work in the match and pottery trades; the latter sought aid for endangered and sweated women in the hollow-ware trade. These left-wing newspapers incorporated techniques and strategies that the mainstream press had pioneered and their position on women's work was indistinguishable from their new liberal counterparts.
