Pamphlet entitled The disinherited family: a plea for the endowment of the family, published in 1924 as part of campaign led by Eleanor F. Rathbone for a universal system of family allowances paid directly to mothers. As a result of the campaign, the Family Allowances Act 1945 ensured that dependent children under 15, those aged 15-18 and still in education, and older non-working children over 15, were provided with a Family Allowance and Child Tax Allowance.
