Beschreibung

Women's lives changed more in the twentieth century than in any previous century. It was a period of transformation, not only of the political realm, but also of the household, family and workplace. Innovations in military technology, the mass media, manufacturing, medicine, travel and communications shaped the lives of women. Ranging widely over the whole of Europe and the entirety of the long twentieth century, this fascinating account is the first comprehensive survey of women in twentieth-century Europe.
