   schema:description ""Privacy is not often thought of as a marker of modernity but a look at British women's writings of the early twentieth century suggests that it should be so. For women, access to privacy, especially spatial privacy, has often been limited but with an increased awareness of the politics of space and the importance of a room of one's own, privacy, long considered a male preserve, was slowly becoming seen as a privilege that a modern and middle-class woman was entitled to. This appropriation of anti-social privacy was a rebellion against conventional, other-centered femininity and emancipatory in its modernity. But even as women were growing aware of their new desire for privacy, privacy was nonetheless awkward for women to practise. Looking at representations of women's privacy (or lack of it) and exploring the various spaces that women deploy for privacy allow us to see the ambivalences of modernity for women."--Jacket."@en ;
