Summary

Summary

artime Women examines in detail the short-term changes of the war years; the jobs in war plants and support services; the effects of women's earnings on family finances; the response of trade unions. Anderson shows that the seeds of the postwar denial of women's equal participation were present in the ambivalence of wartime attitudes. Crammed with information perceptively interpreted.
