This chapter examines the history of the creation of the School of Social Science at the University of Liverpool in the 1920s. It describes the author's own experience as one of the first students of the study of society and discusses her observations in unemployment centres and community councils that reveal the slow process of community development. This chapter also evaluates the impact of the voluntary or the social work movement on the emancipation of women.
