Women's History: Britain, 1850-1945 : An Introduction Paperback

Edited by June Purvis

Part of the Women's and Gender History series


Women's History: Britain 1850-1945 introduces the main themes and debates of feminist history during this period of change, and brings together the findings of new research. It examines the suffrage movement, race and empire, industrialisation, the impact of war and womens literature.

Specialists in their own fields have each written a chapter on a key aspect of womens lives including health, the family, education, sexuality, work and politics.

Each contribution provides an overview of the main issues and debates within each area and offers suggestions for further reading.

It not only provides an invaluable introduction to every aspect of womens participation in the political, social and economic history of Britain, but also brings the reader up to date with current historical thinking on the study of womens history itself.
