Über diesen Titel


Denmark is one of the most progressive countries in terms of family support policies. This book, however, reveals a backdrop of diminished rights, inequalities and family violence in the lives of vulnerable lone mothers. If this is the case in Denmark, what is the situation in other countries, including the USA, the UK and other EU member states? "Diminished rights" is a qualitative study that documents the daily lives of vulnerable lone mothers and their children in Denmark. Loss of rights, gender and ethnic inequality, and family violence all emerge as key themes, with far-reaching international implications. The book: presents vivid case stories to illuminate the voices and experiences of the women involved in the study; identifies lone mothers as part of an emerging post-modern underclass in Denmark; highlights the disturbing prevalence of domestic violence that pervades many lone mothers' lives; and raises questions around legal and child custody rights and the lack of redress in a patriarchal justice system. Policy and practice recommendations are made with wide-ranging applications for an international audience of policy makers, practitioners and academics.


"Drawing comparisons with welfare reform rhetoric and realities in the UK and USA, this powerful book makes a critical contribution to cross-national social policy and child and family literature." Beth Swadener, Early Childhood Education, Kent State University, USA "This compelling volume contributes important voices and richly contextualised narrative data to a growing cross-national literature on lone mothers, children and the state." Beth Swadener, Early Childhood
