Synopsis: This book gives a new perspective on the life of women in the 1960s, contrary to the widely accepted vision of a Swinging Sixties full of Sex, Drugs and Rock ’n’ Roll. It was certainly a progressive decade, bringing many life changing events, especially for women.

This book looks at the experiences of teenagers, young career women and those married with young children, especially those based outside of London and so away from the main hedonistic influences of the day. Much of the information included in the book comes from the surprisingly honest and generous contributions of women of the 1960s whom have provided information through interviews and questionnaires. This ensures that the book has covered a wide range of women and experiences, including both women known to Sheila and strangers.

Topics included: Life after school, career choices, life after work, eating in and out, teenagers, sex, marriage, fashion and finance, women’s liberation, travel and current affairs such as the Cold War and feared nuclear attacks.

About the Author: In the 1960s Sheila Hardy had it all; a satisfying career as an English teacher; her own car; then a husband and in 1968, her first son. Her writing took off in the late Seventies when she discovered that her social history talks could be turned into books. She has been a frequent broadcaster on local radio; a Parish councillor and long serving school governor. Research for her books has taken her and her husband all over the country, even to the Caribbean for the biography of Nelson's wife. She enjoys cooking, entertaining, and spending time with her four beautiful granddaughters. She is also the author of A 1950s Housewife.
