World War, 1939-1945 -- Women -- Great Britain.
This book examines women's experiences in Britain during the Second World War, drawing on women's own memories and archival sources. It explores the myths and silences surrounding women's contribution to the war effort. Part of the text is devoted to women's experience of paid employment and how their sexuality became a contentious workplace issue. This theme is continued in the accounting for the sexuality of women on other spaces and places and how women re-negotiated their femininity, and thus their own 'war experiences'.
