Description
Information
Before the First World War a single woman had one aim in life: to get married. But three-quarters of a million British soldiers were killed in that war, leaving not enough men to go round and a generation of so-called 'Surplus Women'. What became of them? And how did they overcome their disappointment?

Singled Out explores the extraordinary lives these women made for themselves. It tells how they challenged conventions - becoming engineers and explorers; how they campaigned to better the lot; how they coped with poverty, childlessness and frustration. Above all, it shows how women proved there is more to life than men and helped change our society.
