Description - Imagining Home by Wendy Webster

This study critically explores the lives of women in Britain during the immediate postwar period (1945-64), and re-examines the current conception of the 1950s as a nadir for women - when the values of domesticity and motherhood were paramount. The book focuses on the experiences of black, Asian and white women in the postwar period. It provides an assessment of the impact of demobilization and examines central issues such as paid work, domesticity and motherhood.
