Solitudes maternelles, solidarités publiques et entraides privées: les mères célibataires dans la France de la fin du vingtième siècle.

Abstract : In France, since the 1970s, becoming a mother without being in a relationship has become a symbol of women’s autonomy. Hence, being a single mother does not necessarily mean any longer being either the victim of men’s desertion or being a woman with a permissive sexual behaviour. Instead, the mother can be an active social agent, who has deliberately chosen to experience single parenthood. In order to understand if public solidarity and private sources of help can protect these women against emotional solitude and social isolation, this article presents three case studies taken from a sociological research about single mothers in France’s Pays de la Loire.
