Its aim is to contribute to the current debate by providing a detailed account of how a small group of young mothers occupy themselves in everyday life. Through two years of anthropological fieldwork in the suburbs of Bergen, Norway's second largest city, the author has listened carefully to the conversation of female friends around their kitchen-tables. She examines how the lives of these young women are shaped and what dignity and self-respect means to them. On the basis of this information the author discusses a whole range of topics.
