All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation

All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation, by Rebecca Traister

Journalist Rebecca Traister began an investigation into single American women in the twenty-first century, setting out to examine why American women were staying single for longer. In examining US history, she found that this was not necessarily entirely novel. Indeed, when viable choices are offered to American women, delaying or even rejecting marriage altogether becomes more common. Definitely worth reading if you’re interested in contemporary American society, especially single people.
