Editorial Reviews

Review

«Leighow's story of how feminist ideas played themselves out in nursing's evolution and daily practice makes this a marvelous and informative little book that will be useful to a wide variety of historians interested in the most significant demographic revolution of the twentieth century - that in women's work - which has shaped the public and private sphere in myriad ways.» (Regina Morantz-Sanchez, The Journal of American History)

From the Publisher

In the forty year period after World War II, American women's roles and perceptions changed dramatically. Between 1946 and 1986 married females became a large and stable component of the labor force. During the late 1960s, 1970s, and early 1980s, a growing number of these women adopted the beliefs of the re-emerging feminist movement. This study analyzes the impact of both the demographic revolution and the women's movement on postwar women workers. It also traces the rise of a conservative backlash and examines the reasons traditionalist women found feminism threatening. Nursing, a historically feminized occupation, is the prism through which postwar women are studied.
