This article contributes to new understandings of women's and gender history as well as to the history of education since it deals with a previously unexplored field of research in Wales, namely, the history of the teaching profession. It draws upon original primary source material, mainly interview data, resulting from a substantial oral history project undertaken by the author during a period of Extended Research Leave won as a result of a bidding process at UWIC. It combines the methodology of oral history with the use of primary and secondary documentary research. Llafur is Wales' only labour history journal and a very well respected one. Its contributors include prominent academics, including historians of education, and was considered to be the most appropriate home for this artice, in view of its specialised content. The article was subject to peer review prior to publication.
