Looking at the lives of Australian women in the period 1960 to 1990, this work begins by building up a picture of women's lives during the 1950s and goes on to look at the following years in greater detail. For many Australians, women's liberation of the 1960s and 1970s signalled a positive change in women's working and living conditions as well as in basic assumptions about the role of women in society. By the 1990s many of the fundamental changes in relation to women's lives in the previous 30 years were taken for granted. This book highlights the advances made over this 30 year period.

Are women just ditching the idea of working full-time and breaking the glass ceiling? Especially when they have children? Or are work places the problem? That is what we are talking about.
In this program we use TV archives to look at women's experience in a range of occupations, from a jockey to an engineer, from a carpenter to the first woman pilot in the defence forces.
Over the 20th century, few changes have been as profound as the huge overhaul in the often confusing and always contradictory roles played by men and women in Australian society.
