5.0 out of 5 stars A plethora of places, 2 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Woman's Place: 1910-1975 (Paperback)
Ruth Adam provides an excellent, succinct overview of the changes in women's lives from 1910 to 1975 and the many roles they were expected, by society, to adopt along the way. There were times when women were expected to remain at home looking after husband and children and then it was her duty, particularly in war time, to go out to work - and resume her domestic role again after the war. She was at times supposed to be pure and virginal; at other times she was supposed to be sexually emancipated. At one time teenage girls were expected to obey their fathers then they were earning their own money and could do as they pleased.
This is an easy to read work as Ruth Adam writes in an engaging, informal style. As she was born in 1907 and died in 1977 her life covers the span of the book and it would be interesting to know what she would have made of the situation for women as they moved into the 21st century.
