An extended  review of Caitriona Beaumont, Housewives and Citizens: Domesticity and the Women’s Movement in England, 1928-1964 (Manchester: MUP, 2013) [click title to see review].

This is an extended review critically examining the ideas behind this book.  Particularly, it questions the degree to which mainstream women’s organizations like the National Council of Women and the Mothers’ Union can be considered to have bridged the gap between the first and second waves of feminism.  This is an incomplete draft, a fuller version will follow in the Spring
