Description - Women in the Third Reich by Matthew Stibbe
The importance of gender as a category of analysis is now very widely accepted, but there has been a slowness to bring it to bear in general interpretative surveys of Nazi Germany. This study aims to remedy the ommission, to reintroduce that half of the German population who were female. It asks why such a sizeable proportion was ready to rally around a movement both blatantly anti-feminist and determined to exclude women from public life; how ordinary Germans translated Nazi beliefs into actions; and what, other than gender, influenced their political choices between 1933 amd 1945.
