Sinners, scroungers, saints: lone mothers, past and present [exhibition curatorship]

Research output: Non-traditional research outputCuratorshipResearch

Abstract

From First World War widows to the ‘Vicky Pollard’ stereotype of teenage mothers, Sinners, scroungers, saints explored the ways in which lone mothers have been represented over time. Developed in collaboration with One Parent Families | Gingerbread, the exhibition showcased new research, challenged common perceptions and told the stories of lone mothers from the 1800s to the present day. There are many reasons why women become lone parents, including relationship breakdown, forced separation and, although rare, the independent choice to ‘go it alone’. Sinners, scroungers, saints presented archive material and personal testimonies, questioning some popular myths.
