An examination of the ways in which women challenged the British educational, employment and welfare systems after the franchise. Helen Jones explores how women adapted their strategies to confront the system from within, and what constraints were imposed on them. She also examines the active role that British women played in Continental Europe, and an important comparative chapter looks at the experience of women in France, Germany, Italy, Australia and the USA.


'..Women in British Public Life' is an important addition to the literature that successfully spans the gap between student text and research monograph.'

Anne Borsay, University of Wales, Lampeter.
