Description - Women and the Women's Movement in Britain, 1914-1999 by Martin Pugh

This revised edition brings the history of the women's movement in Britain up to the end of the 20th century. The author focuses attention on the different generations of women involved in the women's movement since 1914 and examines the marked trend towards marriage and motherhood amongst British women since the 1920s, arguing that domesticity has, historically, been a positive influence promoting change in the lives of women. Pugh has a very wide focus, assessing feminist pressure groups, women's organizations and the growth of popular women's magazines. The 2nd edition has been expanded with two new chapters on the women's movement in the 1960s and on the influence of Britain's first female Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher.
