This paper surveys patterns of equality in the UK since c.1900, in particular, how income inequality narrowed, espe- cially from 1945 to the late 1970s, but has now returned to much earlier levels. It asks how changes—for better and worse—in this and other inequalities, including gender, race, and age, have come about.

Pat Thane, MA (Oxon), Ph.D. (LSE), FBA, is Research Professor in Contemporary British History, King’s College London. Her research interests include gender, welfare, and social inequalities in Britain in the last century. Her recent publications include Sinners? Scroungers? Saints? Unmarried Motherhood in Twentieth Century Britain, with Tanya Evans (2012). Her monograph Divided Kingdom: A History of Britain since 1900 will be published by CUP in May 2018.
