The introduction sets out current historical debates on the history of the women's movement in twentieth century Britain and argues that the term women's movement needs to be re-defined to encompass the wide range of women's organisations campaigning on behalf of women throughout the period 1928-64. It identifies gaps in the existing literature where the significance of large voluntary women's organisations has been overlooked. A brief summary of each chapter is provided along with a discussion of the methodology and the sources used for the study.
