Out of the Shadows: A History of Women in Twentieth-Century Wales

Synopsis

"Out of the Shadows reveals the story of women's lives in Wales during the twentieth century. In this 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 and learned, Deirdre Beddoe 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."
