Review 'Why are 'housewife' and 'feminist' seen to be mutually exclusive terms? Why has feminism so often assumed that women can only become modern by leaving home? In their illuminating work of cultural history, Johnson and Lloyd challenge such beliefs by redescribing the housewife as a distinctively modern and politically complex form of identity. A timely, invigorating, and much needed reassessment of feminist ideas.' Rita Felski, University of Virginia 'Combines an impressively broad range of materials from popular culture and wider public debate to challenge some of the key feminist wisdoms about the significance of the figure of the 1940s and 1950s housewife. This exemplary study offers a taste of interdisciplinary feminist scholarship at its best.' Jackie Stacey, Lancaster University 'Why do stories about happy homemakers provoke such conflicting emotions among contemporary women? Sentenced to Everyday Life helps us understand the issues at stake. It is a timely analysis and About the Author Lesley Johnson is Deputy Vice-Cancellor (Research) and Professor of Cultural Studies, Griffith University, Queensland. Justine Lloyd is Visiting Professor in Australian Cultural Studies and Australian Postdoctoral Research Fellow.
