Gender and the Construction of Home Life
There is hardly a garden in England which is not surrounded by wall or hedge or railing, the obscurer the better ... There is hardly a window in any family house which is not curtained effectively to obscure the view of the inquisitive passer-by. And as a consequence there is no play or book or film so successful as that which deals with the intimacies of family life, which, except in one family - his or her own - are a complete mystery to the ordinary man or woman. (Spring Rice, 1981, p. 16)
