Using over 125 interviews with women who have no children, Yvonne Vissing explodes our cultural myths by exploring not only the reasons why these people have no children, but also how childlessness affects and shapes their day-to-day lives. The author shows us the issues that are central for the women in part by having them tell their stories in their own words. The book is organized in three main sections - the social context of ""childlessness"", its causes and its meanings. Each section places the women's experiences within a demographic and sociological context to help readers understand the issues these individuals face and the ways they must make a place for themselves in today's society.
