For many women the 1920s was a time of change after the pressures - and opportunities - of the First World War. Social historian Pamela Horn examines how women responded to the new challenges, whether in the upper-class revival of the social round, new middle-class professional lives or the traditional factory and domestic service of working-class women; and she explores topics such as rural life, political activities, leisure time and attitudes to family planning.
