REVIEW OF 'MAN DOES, WOMAN IS: AN ANTHOLOGY OF WORK AND GENDER'
Saturday 13 May 1995
"Women have served all these centuries as looking-glasses possessing the magic and delicious power of reflecting the figure of man at twice his natural size." Shaw's anthology gleams with such pleasing nuggets as this from Virginia Woolf - but then her subject, work and gender, embraces just about anything ever written. The book's sharp and smartly written introduction fronts a dizzying mix of writings from Homer, Norman Tebbit and Dorothy Words-worth that might just have been brought together under the heading "Life".
