This review is from: Wartime Women: A Mass Observation Anthology: A Mass-observation Anthology of Women's Writings, 1937-1945 (WOMEN IN HISTORY) (Paperback)
Wartime Woman by Dorothy Sheridan is a collection of the thoughts of the women who took part in the Mass Observation Scheme to find out about the thoughts, opinions and feeling of woman during the war years.
It is amazing to read the extracts and understand the things that mattered to the women during this period and also to consider them in light of how the future role of women would be determined after the war.
Not all the extracts are well written but this just goes to show the cross section of women who were encouraged to take part.
It is a very informative book and well worth the read, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
