Event description

Description

This lecture will explore the history of lesbian motherhood in Britain between 1945 and 1978, a period when cultural attitudes largely assumed that it was impossible to be both a lesbian and a mother. Drawing on press reports and accounts from lesbian mothers themselves, the talk will consider the experiences of lesbian mothers and social attitudes toward them.
