Abstract

This paper examines lone motherhood through the lens of narrative identity.
The data consists of the written life stories of seventeen Finnish lone mothers.
The focus is on how lone mothers from two different age cohorts construct
their identity around motherhood and lone motherhood. Thus historical context
becomes an important element in the analysis.
