An in-depth study of the impact of gender in modern Welsh society.

This edited collection offers a reappraisal of gender as a category of analysis in modern Welsh history. Beginning with sex work in the eighteenth century and concluding with women’s late twentieth-century antinuclear activism, the contributors examine how gender has been constructed, represented, performed, and experienced by men and women at different times and places throughout Wales’s modern past.
Beth Jenkins is a Visiting Fellow and former British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Essex. 

Paul O’Leary is the Sir John Williams Professor of Welsh History at Aberystwyth University. 

Stephanie Ward is a senior lecturer in modern Welsh history at Cardiff University.
