Women In Twentieth Century Britain from the Author: Ina Zweiniger-Bargielowska. Women's lives have changed dramatically over the course of the twentieth century: reduced fertility and the removal of formal barriers to their participation in education, work and public life are just some examples. At the same time, women are under-represented in many areas, are paid significantly less than men, continue to experience domestic violence and to bear the larger part of the burden in the domestic division of labour. Women in 2000 may have many more choices and opportunities than they had a hundred years ago, but genuine equality between men and women remains elusive. This unique, illustrated history discusses a wide range of topics organised into four parts: the life course - the experience of girlhood, marriage and the ageing process; the nature of women's work, both paid and unpaid; consumption, culture and transgression; and citizenship and the state.

Citizen Invert Queer from the Author: Deborah Cohler. In late nineteenth-century England, “mannish” women were considered socially deviant but not homosexual. A half-century later, such masculinity equaled lesbianism in the public imagination. How did this shift occur? Citizen, Invert, Queer illustrates that the equation of female masculinity with female homosexuality is a relatively recent phenomenon, a result of changes in national and racial as well as sexual discourses in early twentieth-century public culture.Incorporating cultural histories of prewar women’s suffrage debates, British sexology, women’s work on the home front during World War I, and discussions of interwar literary representations of female homosexuality, Deborah Cohler maps the emergence of lesbian representations in relation to the decline of empire and the rise of eugenics in England. Cohler integrates discussions of the histories of male and female same-sex erotics in her readings of New Woman, representations of male and female suffragists, wartime trials of pacifist novelists and seditious artists, and the interwar infamy of novels such as Radclyffe Hall’s The Well of Loneliness and Virginia Woolf’s Orlando.By examining the shifting intersections of nationalism and sexuality before, during, and after the Great War, this book illuminates profound transformations in our ideas about female homosexuality.

Women Drinking Out In Britain Since The Early Twentieth Century from the Author: David W. Gutzke. Women's drinking has attracted enormous attention in recent years, but surprisingly this topic has not produced a comprehensive survey covering the twentieth century. Students and scholars alike can read this book to obtain a new perspective on women's drinking habits over more than a century, and the most critical factors promoting historical change. Within a chronological framework, the book offers a way of conceptualising how women's drinking habits changed in response to wars, ideology, advertising, moral panics, sexism, legislative initiatives, employment, age, ethnicity, technology, new drinking venues, and marketing strategies. It focuses clearly on the bulk of women who drank alcohol responsibly, but, given concern recently over 'binge drinking', devotes attention to the rise of the youth market and problems associated with it. Brewers' efforts to entice women into drinking beer regularly spanned the decades since 1945, but consistently failed, with men increasingly drinking wine with women both in bars and at home. Close attention is also paid to the image of drinking, projected in advertising, the mass media and films. Specialists will find this study vital for challenging traditional assumptions and offering original new interpretations about the diverse factors influencing women's consumption of alcohol. It provides students, both undergraduates and postgraduates, not just a wide survey, but new material, new ideas and new concepts in which to understand historical change for one huge group in British society. General readers, too, can easily read this book with both interest and enjoyment.
