MRS. WARREN PROFESSION
In the preface Shaw explains that the real cause of prostitution is the underpaying, undervaluing and overworking of women. Prostitution isn’t a free choice made by women; they can only marry a rich man or work as teacher or housekeeper and are the poorest women are forced to undertake this way to live. finally, he said that prostitution is organized and exploited not only by single people but also as a big international commerce.
In this part Mrs. warren explains her daughter the reasons of her choice. she tells that her mother was a widow, who had a fried-fish shop and she had four daughters: Liz and Mrs Warren were sisters, and the others were half sisters. Liz and Vivie’s mother were really beautiful, well made; the other girls were ugly but honest. The two “half- sisters”, who worked hard, had a terrible life: one of them died. Instead, Liz and Mrs Warren went to a church school: one day, Liz went out and she didn’t come back. People thought that Liz had slained herself, but one day, while Mrs Warren was working in a bar at Waterloo Station, an elegant woman arrived there. It was Liz. The two sisters began to talk about their future and they decided to go into business together. They became two prostitute, because they needed money, without being underpaid or undervalued.
