Down Among the Women, Paperback
2 out of 5 (1 rating)


Down among the women. What a place to be! In the Fifties, women were looked after by nice, breadwinning men: or so went the myth.

Eighteen-year-old unmarried mother Scarlet, a lost child recovering from her first abortion, looks at the world with her friends and begins to see the truth.

An icily funny account of a dawning feminist sensibility in a world where the romantic ideal of love and domesticity ruled.

I found this a very confusing story - and not really worth the effort in the end
