Warren's Profession is a play written by George Bernard Shaw in 1893, and first performed in London in 1902. The play is about a former prostitute, now a madam (brothel proprietor), who attempts to come to terms with her disapproving daughter.

One of Bernard Shaw’s early plays of social protest, Mrs Warren’s Profession places the protagonist’s decision to become a prostitute in the context of the appalling conditions for working class women in Victorian England. Faced with ill health, poverty, and marital servitude on the one hand, and opportunities for financial independence, dignity, and self-worth on the other, Kitty Warren follows her sister into a successful career in prostitution. Shaw’s fierce social criticism in this play is driven not by conventional morality, but by anger at the hypocrisy that allows society to condemn prostitution while condoning the discrimination against women that makes prostitution inevitable.

This Broadview edition includes a comprehensive historical and critical introduction; extracts from Shaw’s prefaces to the play; Shaw’s expurgations of the text; early reviews of the play in the United States, Canada, and Great Britain; and contemporary contextual documents on prostitution, incest, censorship, women’s education, and the “New Woman.”

Book was great quality, wasn't my favorite read but was definitely a New Woman text!

Had to read it for class. Story was slow.

This is a play, the characters are good, the reaction to the profession would probably be the same today, the book makes a wonderful discussion topic and it's a fun read.

ok

it was very concise, quite like this review, however the big shocking twist doesn't withstand the test of time. it comes off as quaint and almost unnecessary.
happy light
Great read for book club discussion
G. B. Shaw nailed the bigot and the smug intellectual with high opinions that are only too ready to be shared. Society, today, could learn a lesson from this story.
