Marks & Spencer. 1996. Extract from the Conditions of Employment 1996 Booklet. Page 18-19
This extract from the booklet provides an interesting comparison to the internal M&S documents of the 1940’s. This page can be contrasted to these earlier extracts from internal M&S documents regarding the maternity rights of women employees – see, for example, here and here. These changes can be argued to have resulted from the work of the women’s liberation movement in raising awareness of gender-based discrimination in the workplace, and demanding “equal education and job opportunities”.
