Product description

From the Publisher

A Woman's Place: 1910-75 was written twenty-five years ago by a novelist-historian and is both human and humane, wise and cynical, polemical and witty. It concludes, wearily: ‘A woman born at the turn of the century could have lived through two periods when it was her moral duty to devote herself, obsessively, to her children; three when it was her duty to society to neglect them; two when it was right to be seductively "feminine"; and three when it was a pressing social obligation to be the reverse.’
This is, we believe, the most readable overview of twentieth century women’s lives yet written, covering everything Persephone readers might want to know about the suffragettes, early ‘type-writers’, contraception or work in wartime; and it complements our other books by exploring factually what they, indirectly, explore in fiction.
