In the play, Shaw set out to challenge the satisfaction of his audience and weaken some of their most deep-rooted notions. He draws public attention to the truth that prostitution is caused, not by female depravation, but simply by underpaying, undervaluing, and overworking women, in a capitalist and chauvinist society. These controversies develop through the different characters particularly, and the theme is analyzed in the relation between Vivie and her mother.

From the Paper:

"Mrs Warren's Profession, written by Bernard Shaw in the early nineteen hundreds, deals with a series of moral issues, which are of important relevance even now. Throughout the play, Bernard Shaw, proves to be an incisive and irreverent social citric, therefore being the antithesis of the romantic dramatist which characterized Victorian society. Shaw, uses the play to put forward his ideas and criticize social and moral issues existent at the beginning of the 20th century in British society, issues which ironically are still applicable in our supposedly developed world."
