Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0708315917, Paperback)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 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. This ground-breaking yet accessible text is accompanied by a good selection of illustrations. Out of the Shadows 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 in particular.
