Overview

Full Circles explores the extent to which women's lives are defined by particular places and spaces. The essays describe the very different lives and expectations of women in post-industrial and developing countries from childhood to old age. Analyzing the

influence of age, class, ethnicity, nationality, and individual values, the essays explore the futures open to women in the diverse and changing locations in which they find themselves. These elements range from prior experience, the significance of companionship, the potential for

change, the diversity of women's roles in the home, the workplace and the community, and the ways in which ideologies affect individual opportunity and collective experience.
