While sexual relationships between women had never been illegal they were still subject to societal conventions and pressures. The Home Office and the Lord Chancellors Office had a role in censoring publications, and in 1936 the publication The Single Woman and Her Emotional Problems came under question for “passages relating to lesbian practices”. This follows on from the famous trail around Radclyffe Hall’s The Well of Loneliness in the late 1920s.
