This volume - devoted to Welsh women's history - rescues the submerged lives of women over the last two centuries from oblivion, and uses their varied histories to redefine Wales as not merely 'the land of our fathers'. What was the role of women in enforcing the rural community's sanctions against adulterers? What impression of women's lives is given by the Welsh-language periodicals of the last century? How did women organize in the temperance associations and the suffrage movement? What toll did women's work in the coal communities take? Did the Welsh 'Mam' survive into the inter-war period? These are some of the questions addressed by the contributors to this volume.
