About this book


Using the widest range of evidence, from the political feminist pressure groups to popular women's magazines, this book provides a challenging and original analysis of the adaptation of the women's movement in Britain in the period between the winning of the vote and the late 1950's. It examines how women successfully worked with the grain of change in the political system; but it also considers the nature of the long-term decline of the organised movement.
