This book examines how women responded to the new challenges and the difficulties of those years, from the revival of the round of high society by the social élite, to the lives of the new middle-class professionals, and working-class women employed in the still traditional milieu of factory and domestic service. Home life, the bringing up of children, and attitudes to family planning are investigated as are the widening leisure and political activities which some women could now afford.
Drawing on family papers, contemporary publications and archive research, this book, complemented by a wealth of photographs, cartoons and other illustrations, presents a vivid picture of what women’s lives were like during the period.
