The history of policing in Britain is a considerably under-researched subject, and the advancement of women within that history even more so. This book seeks to fill that gap, by tracking the progress of women in policing - a story that is longer and more complex than perhaps first meets the eye. Rather than taking a broad narrative overview of women's progress in the realm of law enforcement, this book examines individual experiences within that history.

It tells women’s stories as a representative snapshot of the time in which they policed, allowing the reader to understand the wider context whilst taking the time to relfect on those women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Assembled from a collection of experts in the field of police history and the Police History Society, this is a must-read for anyone with an interest in women’s, social, or policing history in Britain.
