Synopsis: The pattern of women's lives, their aspirations and their expectations, have changed dramatically this century. Unfortunately, their partners, employers and governments have not kept pace. The result of this is that women, with the attitudes that they now hold, are poised to enter the 21st century ahead of men - our society now has a "century gap" between the sexes. As a result of this "century gap", argues the author, women are often left feeling torn and guilty as they try to make the balance between domestic life, where the "new" caring/sharing man is still a myth, and a work life where they are expected to conform to archiac employment patterns which continue to favour men for hours, high pay, training, opportunities and legal and pension rights. Encouraging women to recognize that the guilt they inevitably feel is not of their own making, this book explains the dilemma this poses for society as a whole. The author is Labour MP for Peckham, South London.

Store Description: We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
