Women in Contemporary Germany: Life, Work and Politics
Second revised edition
- Thoroughly updated and includes a new chapter on the implications of the events in 1989 for women in both East and West Germany.
Having emerged in 1945 from the shackles of Nazi ideology, German women have played a major part in postwar economic and social reconstruction. The author examines issues such as women's position in the labour market since 1945; their vocational and professional training; their changing role within the family and at work; and the effects of European rulings on equal opportunities.
