The prospect before her : a history of women in Western Europe by Olwen H Hufton( Book )

86 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 1,939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did women in 16th century western Europe cope with the consequences of being considered inherently sinful--as well as being legally and economically subordinate to their fathers, husbands, brothers, and sons? What might become of a woman unable to raise a dowry? What were the difficulties faced by spinsters, single mothers, and widows? In this brilliant investigation into the lives of women from all social strata, Hufton leads us from poor-house to palazzo, from cradle to grave, illuminating what it meant to be female in western Europe during the years 1500 to 1800

Europe, privilege and protest, 1730-1789 by Olwen H Hufton( Book )

60 editions published between 1980 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 973 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the eighteenth century the claims of monarchs and even privileged aristocracies to unquestioned obedience and of the Church to a monopoly of truth were challenged by an increasingly secular and literate society. Reason, the rights of the individual to freedom from arbitrary government and increased tolerance shaped discourses of opposition. A growing population pressing on food supplies and the fiscal demands of governments with expansionist ambitions in America, Asia or central and eastern Europe contributed to confrontation and dissent." "Professor Hufton provides a fascinating account of the undermining of an archaic social order, top heavy with courts, bureaucracies and standing armies in different European contexts. She demonstrates how privilege was countered with protests which provoked constitutional crises and generated popular violence precipitating Europe into an age of revolution."--Jacket

Gender and the use of time = Gender et emploi du temps( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and Multiple languages and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dit boek presenteert de resultaten van een forum dat een jaar lang gehouden werd in het European University Insitute in 1994-5, dat focuste op de complexe thematieken die zich voordoen uit de verschillen in tijdgebruik tussen de seksen op het einde van de twintigste eeuw. Het boek behandelt vragen als: in hoeverre speelt gender een rol in het bepalen hoeveel tijd er gespendeerd wordt aan betaalde arbeid op de arbeidsmarkt en hoeveel in onbetaalde zorgarbeid thuis? Hoeveel tijd kan elke sekse spenderen aan vrije tijd of politieke activiteiten? Wat zijn de gevolgen van de distributie van tijd en hoeveel is er veranderd in de afgelopen twee decennia? In hoeverre hebben recente economische ontwikkelingen met betrekking tot werkloosheid, deeltijds of periodiek werk en de vermindering van welzijnsdiensten genderspecifieke gevolgen en dragen bij tot een feminisatie van armoede?
