Society creates an illusion of equal opportunity while it continues to reinforce women's traditional role at home. Much is spoken today of the changing role of women, but for working-class girls there has been little change. They are still brought up to marry, have children and care for their homes, husbands and families. It is assumed that they should seek jobs, but these must always take second place. Basing her work on the results of research in four London schools, Sue Sharpe describes and analyzes in this book the many ways in which society constrains women.
