Women of the 1960s

This book gives a new perspective on the life of women in the 1960s, contrary to the widely accepted vision of a Swinging Sixties full of Sex, Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll. It was certainly a progressive decade, bringing many life changing events, especially for women. This book looks at the experiences of teenagers, young career women and those married with young children, especially those based outside of London and so away from the main hedonistic influences of the day.

Much of the information included in the book comes from the surprisingly honest and generous contributions of women of the 1960s whom have provided information through interviews and questionnaires. This ensures that the book has covered a wide range of women and experiences, including both women known to Sheila and strangers. Topics included: Life after school, career choices, life after work, eating in and out, teenagers, sex, marriage, fashion and finance, women's liberation, travel and current affairs such as the Cold War and feared nuclear attacks.
