This concluding chapter has the difficult task of revisiting and consolidating the intervening chapters, which dealt with diverse but connecting themes about Wales and contemporary Welsh life. Each chapter in the collection has reflected on the changes and continuities since the publication of key works in Our Sisters’ Land and the seminal papers revisited from the journal Contemporary Wales. Therefore, the topics revisited have been selected from an expansive set of contributions. Consequently there are omissions such as the contemporary experiences of women in rural Wales (Ashton, 1994; Wenger, 1994), material culture (Vincentelli, 1994), sexuality (Crwydren, 1994) and religion (Morgan, 1994): these are important topics that call for further consideration. Nevertheless, the chapters have explored the role of men and women in Wales and Wales itself as a nation, an economy and a centre of partially devolved governance, and raised questions related to gender, equality and identity.
