This course focuses on a number of important aspects of women's twentieth century experience in intriguing ways. Concepts such as domesticity and motherhood are examined through the study of marriage rituals, childrearing practices, and contraceptive methods. The sexual division of labour is analyzed in terms of women's paid and unpaid work during times like the Second World War. Consumption is examined by looking at shopping habits of the 1950s. Political involvement is measured not only in the progress women made in becoming persons, but also in becoming feminists. Attempts are also made to account for the experiences of immigrant and lesbian women.
