Ann Oakley is one of Britain's most important feminist sociologists. She has transformed the way that we think about gender, housework, motherhood and methods.
This excellent collection provides easy access to her classic works and combines this with an illuminating contemporary commentary. I loved it. Oakley's Reader is a highly valuable commentary on her work on women, gender and social science methodology.
