The spinster – does she exist?
Malin Lindroth is 52, childless and a bachelorette since almost thirty years. When she introduces herself as involuntarily single she receives strong reactions. She asks herself which narratives about life outside of the “couple bubble” can actually be presented. Therefore she decided to write about a personal history that is as little in demand today as it was in the past.
Malin Lindroth wants to reclaim the word “spinster”: redeem the ugly epithet and wash the shame away. This is an act of liberation, a way to challenge the norms that dictate our perception of the world, as well as laying the groundwork for the all-encompassing story of love, power and relationships.
