This study of young women's lives challenges existing assumptions about working class life and womanhood in England between 1918 and 1950. A wide range of sources, including rich autobiographical accounts, are weaved into this vivid account and highlight the fact that young women forged new patterns of social mobility, were important as workplace militants, and developed a distinct youth culture.
