The Androgynous Generation? in Rewriting the sexual contract
By Helen Wilkinson (edited by Geoff Dench, Institute of Community Studies 1998 and republished by Transaction Publishers in 1999

This work brings together a wide selection of view points on what is happening to relations between the sexes and the sexual division of labour in contemporary society. The contributors look at the ways in which gender relationships are changing and the consequences for family life and society generally, and the part the state should play in future developments. The book encompasses the views of people with widely differing orientations, stretching across the moral and political spectrum. The contributors provide varied interpretations of what the recent sexual revolution means and where it may be leading us. The questions discussed include: Are the lifestyles of men and women converging or polarizing? Do men and women place the same value on family life? Do most mothers want to work full-time while their children are young? Are families strengthened by a sense of orientation and interdependence between the sexes? Does social policy need to recognize sexual differences in order to maximize social equality?
