(How do we talk about a) Manless Woman ?

This is the first stage of our practical research for the project/show How Do You Talk About a Manless Woman? (working title). An exploration of chrononormativity, heteronormativity and the reoccurring character trope of a woman who's husband leaves, found within women's literature. Inspired by 'The Days of Abandonment' by Elena Ferrante, the project asks what the idea that a woman without a husband is a woman in crisis means for the perception of queer lives within society.
