Title of the dissertation:
Description: Through an inside perspective of Luxembourgish single mothers, my thesis aims to understand how single mother’s agency manifests itself when facing societal norms and structures. This work draws on semi-structured, in-depth interviews with five single mothers in order to explore in which ways these women challenge as well as reinforce social norms adhered to the construction of single motherhood. I thus contribute to a more nuanced and qualitative understanding of what it means to be a single mother in Luxembourg by demonstrating that these mothers are strong women who have tactics and routines to cope with their difficult life situation.
