Item description for The Women's Century: A Celebration of Changing Roles, 1900-2000 by Mary Turner & Jenni Murray...

The twentieth century saw female roles changing more rapidly than during any other period of history. In 1900 women were domestic creatures; wives, mothers, workers and ornaments. Some had long sought new rights and freedoms. In the course of a turbulent century, which included two World Wars and an explosion in technology and communications, women had gained a vote and a voice and by 2000 had permeated every male bastion from the professional workplace to the corridors of power. This illustrated survey charts that incredible journey with each chapter dedicated to a decade of the century. It takes us from the suffragettes to the war workers; from the 'Women's Libbers' to the modern executive. Changing roles are examined, as well as the causes and agents of change. Real women from all walks of life are featured in anecdotes from sources including The National Archives. An ideal gift for women of all ages. Contents: * Before 1901 - A Woman's Place * 1900-1914 - Deeds not Words * 1914-1918 - On Her their Lives Depend * The 1920s - The Modern Miss * The 1930s - Domestic Bliss or Suburban Neurosis * 1939-1945 - What Did You Do in the War, Mummy? * The 1940s/1950s - From Housewives' Choice to Rock and Roll * The 1960s - Dolly Birds and Double Standards * The 1970s - Feminists or Free Spirits? * The 1980s/1990s - Having it All? * Key dates, Further Reading and Index
