Late 1800’s and early 1900’s the every day family didn’t pay window cleaners to clean their windows this was a task left to the lady of the house. You could often see them sitting on the windowsill of an upstairs open window hanging the upper half of their body out to clean the outside windows using soap and water and a cloth made from sheepskin or lambskin, this absorbent leather called Chamois or Chammy.
During WWI women undertook men’s roles, women began to work in what was before considered a man’s job, window cleaning.
The war opened up radical new employment opportunities for women and the Great War is often seen as a major turning point in the role of women in British Society.
Women can aspire to any profession.
