The Countess Larra
This new series will bring women to the microphone to speak of some aspect of their lives that is likely to be of interest to other women. In this first broadcast Countess Larra is to tell how she was left to earn her living, with no training of any kind and no marketable asset beyond an ability to cook. She will describe her 'privations and humiliations before she was ahte to get work. Her own story will support her plea to any of her listeners who may be parents-however prosperous they may be-to have their daughters trained to earn their living.
