All the Single Ladies
Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation
Simon & Schuster, 2016
All the single ladies are making a difference – demographically, economically and politically.
Journalist Rebecca Traister provides a thorough historical overview of the role single women played in forming the contemporary United States. She draws on extensive research and personal interviews to create a quantitative and qualitative assessment of issues unmarried women face at all income levels and across racial and geographic borders. Traister organizes chapters by distinct topics – class, economics, marriage and sex – to make information readily available. While always politically neutral, getAbstract recommends her examination of a rising demographic to consultants, HR professionals, and business leaders seeking valuable background on the power and challenges of unmarried women.
