Contemporary feminist politics : women and power in Britain by Joni Lovenduski( Book )

This is the first comprehensive account of feminist politics in Great Britain from the late 1970s to the early 1990s. The authors trace the movement's accomplishments and defeats over four successive conservative government terms. They identify and examine five key areas of British feminist politics--political representation and citizenship, equal employment opportunities, reproductive rights and health, motherhood and childcare, and male violence. In each of these areas, the authors explore both developments in feminist theory and the grass-roots movements

Democratization and the media by Vicky Randall( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While there is widespread agreement that the mass communications media play a potentially crucial role both in democratization and in ensuring democracy's survival, this insight remains remarkably under-researched or theorized. The essays especially commissioned for this volume together analyse differing aspects of the complex relationship between the media and democracy in a diverse range of national contexts."--Jacket
The politics of child daycare in Britain by Vicky Randall( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Child daycare is a crucial issue for gender equality. In Britain its provision, and especially publicly provided or subsidised daycare, has been meagre in comparison with a range of European States. In seeking to explain childcare policy in post-war Britain to the present, this study focuses primarily on the institutional context. It shows how the liberal state tradition, limiting intervention in the private family, and market spheres has intersected with an issue that impinges on family responsibilities and, arguably, requires public resources for its effective resolution. The book also argues that liberalism - in practice an eminently flexible approach - cannot on its own explain policy. Account must be taken of the gender assumptions of policy-makers and their principal advisers, including in the past trade unions; of the centralization of the British governmental process; of the weakness and fragmentation of the childcare lobby, including the less than wholehearted involvement of the women's movement; and of the sheer contingencies of timing."--Jacket

Childcare policy in the European states : limits to convergence( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1970s childcare provision and policy varied markedly between European Community member states. A number of subsequent developments including the growing numbers of working mothers and single-parent families, shifts in national welfare and labour market policy priorities, developments in European Union (EU) childcare policy and the impact of feminism might be expected to have encouraged convergence. This article uses available comparative data to demonstrate both the extent and the limits of convergence in practice. It suggests possible reasons for the limitations to convergence including the limited impact of feminism and of EU childcare initiatives, national variations in women's working patterns and lone motherhood and especially in the resilience of policy orientations embedded in different kinds of welfare regime."--Editor
