| Book Description: |
A detailed exploration of the real lives of unmarried mothers in England through the past century. Argues that the 'permissive' sixties were largely a revolt against the secrecy and hypocrisy that went before. Although this led to greater public tolerance of family diversity, stigma and hardship persisted for many lone mothers and their children.
