Maternity and Gender Policies: Women and the Rise of the European Welfare States, 1880s-1950s
Gisela Bock, Pat Thane
Routledge, 1994 - History - 259 pages
This important collection is the first to analyse the influence of women's movements on the emergence of Europe's welfare state from the 1880s to the 1950s and the limits of that influence. It compares the women's movements and social policies concerning women in the dictatorships of Italy, Germany and Spain with the democracies in Britain, France and Scandinavia and throws new light on feminism, especially in the inter-war period, making a significant contribution to women's studies.
