Twentieth-century developments have altered the position of women beyond all recognition. Women's suffrage and equal rights, the consumer society, control of fertility, the sexual revolution, and the millennium's new breed of female breadwinners have made this a transformative period for women. This anthology of original sources is accompanied by state-of-the-art historiography, and includes an introductory survey providing an accessible overview and analysis of key questions, including the relationship between 'first', 'second' and 'third' wave feminism in Britain.
