Gender in History MUP

  • Provides new insights into the relationship between paid work and selfhood for working class women in post-war England
  • Contributes an original analysis of the relationship between women's workplace protest, feminism and the women's liberation movement
  • Makes important interventions relevant to historians of labour, working class and women's history, and more broadly to historians of social and political life in late modern England
  • Moves beyond accounts focused on women>'s changing relationship with the labour movement at an institutional level by illuminating the values and beliefs of female workers underlying these broader changes
