Using Consumption in Everyday Resistance Practices to Contest Negative Stereotypes: the Case of Teenage Mothers

We explore the interplay between discourses, resistance and consumption, focusing on teenage mothers. Our findings show how consumption can be used in everyday acts of resistance to contest negative stereotypes, and that early motherhood can help some women from relatively disadvantaged backgrounds to develop a stronger and more mature identity.
