British Conservative women MPs and 'women's issues' 1950-1979
Haessly, Katie (2010) British Conservative women MPs and 'women's issues' 1950-1979. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
In the period 1950-1979, there were significant changes in legislation relating to women’s issues, specifically employment, marital and guardianship and abortion rights. This thesis explores the impact of Conservative female MPs on these changes as well as the changing roles of women within the party. In addition there is a discussion of the relationships between Conservative women and their colleagues which provides insights into the changes in gender roles which were occurring at this time.
