6b. How much
did a 'between maid' earn a week?

the number of different job descriptions tell you about the importance
of this kind of work?

1901 census, more than 2,000,000 women were listed as working in these
sort of jobs. Why do you think so many women did this work when the pay
was so low?
6e. 50 years
earlier in the 1851 census almost exactly 1,000,000 women were working
as servants. Why do you think the number of female servants had risen
so much by 1901?
