  • Product Description

Single working women without children (SWWWC) are a notable demographic group yet their health/wellbeing is little visible in research. Work is growing on the stigma of singlehood in couples-oriented cultures with claims that it may be perpetuated through research practices. This book examines interpretations of the health/wellbeing of SWWWC in research and qualitative interviews with SWWWC and argues for more reflexivity towards coupled/family status in health research. How the health/wellbeing of SWWWC is explained in scientific research is analyzed, finding frequent reference to parental or partner roles which can obscure or cast their lives as relatively impoverished and reinforce single woman stereotypes. How SWWWC construct their own wellbeing is then analyzed, finding notions of balance between life spheres and an identity as dynamic as central which challenges understandings of singles/the childless as having lives lacking in breadth or fulfillment. The scientific and lay materials are then brought together over the topics of singleness and paid work in relation to health/wellbeing. This book is useful for health or singles studies researchers and to single/childless women.
