Summary
"This groundbreaking work evaluates the economic and social status of women in the two Irish states during the years of the Second World War." "Based on interviews with over thirty Irish women, this book covers their experiences during the war years and how the war impacted on them in terms of their public and private roles. Themes such as class and income, employment, health and housing are covered, arising from the women's recollections and international research into women and war. The women, from a variety of family and social backgrounds, mainly lived and worked in Belfast and Dublin between 1939 and 1945, but some of them went to Britain to take up war work. The women's own stories are compared with contemporary observations from a number of sources, including the Mass-Observation diary of Belfast woman, Moya Woodside. Other comparisons are made with newspaper commentaries and the files of government and other public bodies responsible for shaping social policy."--BOOK JACKET
