Written by the historical editor of the highly acclaimed Maimie Papers, The Lost Sisterhood describes both the women who chose prostitution as a acreer and the middle-class reformers who sought to eradicate prostitution from the landscape of urban America. What these women thought, how they felt, and where they fit into a rapidly changing society combine in this richly textured description of a neglected aspect of women's history, one that also illuminates the origins of contemporary attitudes toward both prostitution and women in general.
