Contemporary Feminist Politics: Women and Power in Britain by Joni Lovenduski
This is a detailed account of feminist politics in Britain from the late 1970s to the early 1990s. The authors trace the movement's accomplishments and defeats over four successive Conservative Governments. They examine five key areas for feminist politics: political representation and citizenship, equal employment opportunities, reproductive rights and health, motherhood and childcare, and male violence. They conclude that a feminist-influenced British Women's Movement is a changed but unmistakably significant political force in the 1990s.
