For much of their lives, the people of Taradale, New Zealand, did not live in the so-called separate spheres. They lived in a community which revolved around family life and family ties. Yet within their shared spaces they often had different experiences, be that at home, at school, at work or at leisure. This book is concerned with the interpretation of these various events and experiences, the interactions and interconnectedness of women's and men's history.
