For the majority of women, this book asserts, the monotonous cycle of domestic responsibility, economic considerations and social conditioning prevents play from being a part of their lives. The text aims to loosen this grip on women's right and need to play, to find their version of the football match, and to establish how vital play is for a more fulfiling life. The author begins by defining what play is and then goes onto explore the historical and sociological reasons for the lack of it in modern society. Having set the scene, practical advice is then given for putting play back into women's lives, looking at techniques, attitudes, and the ways of creating the time to do it. This is a "guide" book that emerges from the backlash of the 1980s values, for it stresses balance as the essential factor that should enhance, even change, women's lives.
