Resource description

Barbara Wootton was one of the most extraordinary public figures of the twentieth century, influencing the formation of the welfare state and pushing the boundaries of women’s representation in government and education. Tamara Micner considers Ann Oakley’s recent account of the life and work of Wootton to be relevant and animated, but more detail in some parts would have been welcome.
