Campaigns, committees and consultancy
The EAW devised and carried out numerous campaigns, the first of which in 1928 aimed to provide more socket outlets in homes. Campaigns included the design and performance of domestic electrical equipment, post-war reconstruction, air pollution and home planning.
In 1933 the EAW, together with prominent engineers, produced a report on "The Design and Performance of Domestic Electrical Appliances".
The EAW was represented on the committees of official bodies, such as the British Standards Institution, and at a local level on many electricity boards and Home Safety committees. In 1925, the EAW was invited to advise the Committee on Domestic Supplies and Methods of Charge, the first time a government committee consulted women on electrical matters. Their point of view was also sought in drafting the Electricity (Supply) Bill 1926.
