From Vichy to the Sexual Revolution

Gender and Family Life in Postwar France

Sarah Fishman

  • The first social history of postwar France to focus on the experiences of common people who had suffered through the traumas of the war
  • Shows how the ideas of love, marriage, and parenting began changing immediately after the war under the surface of a conservative vision
  • Illuminates how the vision of family shifted away from a rigid structure dominated by the authority of the father toward a more dynamic group characterized by engaged relationships between parents and children in the postwar era
