"Women are marrying younger, having fewer children, and living longer. On her wedding day, the average woman has before her more than half a century of life. She is aged 40 and has 35 years to go when released from the responsibility of full-time childminding. In the face of such statistics, is it still realistic to regard marriage as a full-time career for women? Or is the concept of the housewife who trudges her life away in an already spotless suburban home becoming rather absurd? July, 1963 -- from the introduction. Size: 12mo (standard paperback). Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1. Category: History; Gender Studies; Australia; Inventory No: 0220224.
