Favorite Quote

The revolution is in the expansion of options, the lifting of the imperative that for centuries hustled nearly all (non-slaved) women, regardless of their individual desires, ambitions, circumstances or the quality of matches, down a single highway toward early heterosexual marriage and motherhood.

Single adult women are a complex and often stigmatized social group, treated with pity and suspicion as spinsters or idealized as powerful vamps.

But single women account for an increasing percentage of the population.

Over the course of American history, unmarried women have been instrumental in spearheading radical social movements and campaigning for gender, racial, and economic equality.

Author, political commentator, and writer-at-large for New York Magazine, Rebecca Traister is renowned for her writing on contemporary feminist issues.

Through hundreds of interviews with women from a range of ages, races, economic positions, and sexual orientations, Traister has amassed an in-depth account of the past, present, and future lives of those willingly or unwillingly living as single women.

All The Single Ladies is an exhaustive social history.

Moving from the abolition, temperance, and labor movements to the lives of women today, this book is an exploration of what women might expect and demand in a world where they are no longer predestined for coupledom.
