Synopsis

It is summer... a heat wave... tense, uneasy days in the city.

There are ominous signs of political turbulence in the dying years of the twentieth century. Welfare benefits for women are under attack from a government struggling for survival. But women fight back. They begin to organize, using unorthodox weapons... Feminism has become a threat to the social order.

Lynn Byers, trying to decide whether to have a baby, accepts neither her friends' dreams of worldwide feminist revolution nor the government's demand for a return to 'womanly duties'. But as desperate politicians use increasingly savage methods of control, she can no longer stand aside and watch.
