In Seattle, single men outnumber single women by a lot. This statistic is repeated across the country (mostly in urban areas) where single households now outnumber married ones. According to New York Magazine’s Rebecca Traister (Big Girls Don’t Cry) this “independent nation” is largely being driven by the women. ‘All the Single Ladies’ is a historical overview of the positive cultural shifts that have occurred when women have been given the freedom to not marry. What effect will today’s horde of unmarried women have? In conversation with Stephanie Coontz, Director of Research and Public Education for the Council on Contemporary Families, Traister will explore the modern trend of the single woman and why it’s so important for the future of the country.
