Annmaire Hughes builds a popular political history of women, the home, and family in interwar Scotland, integrating class and gender and linking public and private spheres. She reveals the previously unexplored role that women played in interwar socialist politics, the General Strike, and popular political protest, demonstrating how gender shaped class and class struggle, particularly domestic violence.
