Some brief overview of book

This new edition is fully revised and brings the history of the women's movement in Britain right up to the end of the 20th century. The author focuses attention on the different generations of women involved in the women's movement since 1914 and examines the marked trend towards marriage and motherhood among British women since the 1920s, arguing that domesticity has, historically, been a positive influence promoting change in the lives of women. Martin Pugh has a very wide focus, assessing feminist pressure groups, women's organizations, and the growth of popular women's magazines.

The book is brought up-to-date with two new chapters on the women's movement in the 1960s and on the influence of Britain's first female prime minister, Margaret Thatcher.
