And Jessica Valenti is working through words to make it happen. Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado These short stories mix fairy tales with science fiction with suspense with, perhaps, an infinite number of other genres. The female characters at the center of each story range from queer to almost eerily heteronormative.

Any women that reads this will get a PhD in life if you do what it says. Why should a single woman in her 20s read a relationship advice book on how to be a strong man? Because many single women can't find the right man and are frustrated with today's men who don't act like they expect men to act.

This book discusses the difference between the fixed and growth mindsets and explains how to develop the later. Having a growth mindset is so important for women because society tries to tell us we can't be as good at certain things as men are. A growth mindset ensures we know better than that. We can do anything. More young unmarried women were about to join her, thanks to two landmark cases decided in the early seventies.

The Supreme Court had made birth control legal for married couples in the case, Griswold v. Wade that abortion was legal.

The decision affected married and single women equally. But, for the unmarried, legal abortion provided yet another tool to protect their ability to live outside of marriage. It is finally becoming possible to be both single and whole.

With every passing year in the s, there were simply more ways to valorize female existence: more jobs to apply for, flings to have, money to earn. As these new temptations clashed with the retro realities of marriages begun in a pre-feminist era, the divorce rate skyrocketed, hitting close to 50 percent through the late s and s.

The Top Ten Books All Single Women Should Read

The divorce boom had a huge impact on never or not-yet married women. First, it created more single people, helping to slowly destigmatize the figure of the woman without a ring on her finger. It also forced a very public reckoning with marriage as an institution of variable quality. The realization that a bad marriage might be bad enough to cause a painful split provided ammunition to those women who preferred to abstain from marriage than to enter a flawed one.

In , a study conducted by male researchers from Harvard and Yale concluded that a never-married, university-educated forty-year-old woman had only a 2. And yet, women kept right on not marrying. In , the median age for first marriage for women jumped to nearly twenty-four, the highest it had been in the century in which it had been recorded. The future had arrived.

With it had come echoes of the past advances of unmarried women, this time threatening the status quo with the sexual and economic power won for them by previous generations.

Rising to meet them would be new iterations of old political and cultural opposition, figures anxious to corral these sites back into the marital fold. Now Abstention from or delay of marriage may have been a conscious choice for some women in the s and s, but it has now simply become a mass behavior. The most radical of feminist ideas—the disestablishment of marriage—has, terrifyingly for many conservatives, been so widely embraced as to have become habit, drained of its political intent, but ever more potent insofar as it has refashioned the course of average female life.

By , about half of first-time births were to unmarried women; for women under thirty, it was almost 60 percent. Millions of women now live with, but do not marry, long-term partners; others move in and out of sequential monogamous relationships; live sexually diverse lives; live outside of romantic or sexual relationships altogether, both with and without children; marry or enter civil unions with members of the same sex or combine some of these options.

The journey toward legal marriage for gays and lesbians may seem at odds with what looks like a flight from marriage by heterosexuals. But in fact, they are part of the same project: a dismantling of the institution as it once existed—as a rigidly patrolled means by which one sex could exert legal, economic, and sexual power over another—and a reimagining of it as a flexible union to be entered, ideally, on equal terms. Taken together, these shifts, by many measures, embody the worst nightmare of social conservatives: a complete rethinking of who women are and who men are and, therefore, also of what family is and who holds dominion within it.

The expanded presence of women as independent entities means a redistribution of all kinds of power, including electoral power, that has, until recently, been wielded mostly by men.

Almost a quarter of votes were cast by women without husbands, up three points from just four years earlier.

The Single Woman on Her New Book Life, Love and a Dash Of Sass

According to polling firm Lake Research Partners, while white women as a whole voted for Romney over Obama, unmarried white women chose Obama over Romney by a margin of As the second decade of the twenty-first century has worn on, politicians of all stripes, aware of the political power of the unmarried woman yet seemingly incapable of understanding female life outside of a marital context, have come to rely on a metaphor in which American women, no longer bound to men, are binding themselves to government.

They need things like contraception, health care, and they love to talk about equal pay. A move toward independent life did not simply emerge from a clamshell: It was born of generations of dissatisfaction with the inequities of religious, conservative, social practice. Why should we believe that children born to social conservatives will not tread a similar path, away from conservative values, as the one walked by generations of traditionally raised citizens before them?Unmarried women are among the voters who are hardest to pull to the polls.

It is an inspiring novel of owning up to being single. My hope is that the book will encourage women to live their single lives with a little more freedom and confidence and sass; and inspire women to look the world in the eye and say: "Yes, I hope to one day find love, but my life is a great, big, magical, confusing, beautiful, funny, colorful book and love is simply one chapter of a bigger story Thank you ladies.

See a Problem?

Also, reminding myself patience, patience, patience. It has been the greatest privilege and most unexpected surprise of my life to have a platform that infuses a little hope and healing and hilarity into the lives of single women across the world.
