Review: British Feminism in the Twentieth Century

User Review  - Arjun Mishra - Goodreads

This volume is under the impression that the 20th century ended in 1960. In addition to there being only one post-war chapter, it only covers the till 1960 and is a narrow chapter anyway. The title is misleading and the focus is on the first half of the century. Read full review
