  • Title:
    Tough choices bearing an illegitimate child in contemporary Japan
  • Author: Ekaterina Hertog 1979-
  • Description: "Naturally I believed I would get married" : making the choice -- Navigating work and welfare -- Legal discrimination against unwed mothers -- Are unwed mothers "immoral" or "impressive"? : the role of social stigma and shame in upholding family norms -- "The worst child abuse is the absence of a parent" : the role of guilt.
    This book offers the first detailed study of why the number of unmarried Japanese mothers has hardly changed since 1955, despite the prevalence of certain factors in Japan (more later marriages, higher divorce rate, and so on) that have brought about significant increases in lone mothers in even the most conservative western industrialized countries.
