Book summary

Drawing on social, economic, and political history, this volume explains how relations have changed between men and women in Britain in the 20th century. It shows how men and women's expectations from life have radically shifted and converged, describing how we have moved from inhabiting our separate spheres with wholly different prospects and values towards the ideal, if not quite the actuality, of equality, mutuality, companionship, and friendship. This text also shows how progressive ideas about the relationship between men and women that originated in Britain reverberated throughout the world. [via]
