Out Of The Shadows: A History Of Women In Twentieth-Century Wales

by Deirdre Beddoe - £16.99  University Of Wales Press (2000)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780708315910 | ISBN 10: 0708315917

Out Of The Shadows reveals the fascinating story of women's lives in Wales during the twentieth century. In this major contribution to the gendered history of Wales, Deirdre Beddoe draws on wide-ranging historical sources, including extensive archival research, to illuminate key areas of women's lives - education, health, home life, leisure, politics and waged work. Moreover, this comprehensive study pays attention to regional variations and differing linguistic and cultural traditions and thus offers a pluralist and inclusive vision of Welsh women's identity. In a style that is both lively learned, Deirdre Boddoe reconstructs the everyday experiences of ordinary women and reassesses the contributions of a number of hitherto neglected female pioneers in a whole range of social and political movements.
 
This ground-breaking book will be essential reading not only for students and teachers of women's history, but for all those interested in women's history in general and the history of Wales inperticular.
