Soltería femenina (spinstership)

Being a woman entails multiple experiences. It is a combination of circumstances, decisions, impositions, convictions, choices, resignations, commitments... being a single woman is all this too, but with a peculiarity; being a spinster has been one of the many ways of feminine inexistence.
At a historical moment in time, in the 40's to 50's, where getting married and having children was the norm, the question would be: What happened with the women who deviated from that norm? What happened with the women who did not play the role of wife / mother? Is it the discovery of what the anthropologist Teresa del Valle calls “emerging cracks”, i.e. models that question the weight of tradition what drives us in this research? Spinsters are one of those cracks.
