All the single ladies : unmarried women and the rise of an independent nation by Rebecca Traister( Book )

18 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and Italian and held by 2,202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2010, journalist Rebecca Traister started a book that she thought would be about the twenty-first-century phenomenon of the American single woman. Over the course of her research, Traister made a startling discovery: historically, when women have had options beyond early heterosexual marriage, their resulting independence has provoked massive social change. Unmarried women were crucial to the abolition, suffrage, temperance, and labor movements; they created settlement houses and secondary education for women. Today, only 20% of Americans are wed by age 29, compared to nearly 60% in 1960. The Population Reference Bureau calls it a "dramatic reversal." Traister sets out to examine how this generation of independent women is changing the world
Big girls don't cry : the election that changed everything for American women by Rebecca Traister( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was all as unpredictable as it was riveting: Hillary Clinton's improbable rise, her fall and her insistence on pushing forward straight through to her remarkable phoenix flight from the race; Sarah Palin's attempt not only to fill the void left by Clinton, but to alter the very definition of feminism and claim some version of it for conservatives; liberal rapture over Barack Obama and the historic election of our first African-American president; the media microscope trained on Michelle Obama, harsher even than the one Hillary had endured fifteen years earlier. Meanwhile, media women like Katie Couric and Rachel Maddow altered the course of the election, and comedians like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler helped make feminism funny. As Traister sees it, the 2008 election was good for women. The campaign for the presidency reopened some of the most fraught American conversations about gender, race and generational difference, about sexism on the left and feminism on the right, all difficult discussions that had been left unfinished but that are crucial to further perfecting our union
Good and mad : the revolutionary power of women's anger by Rebecca Traister( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the year 2018, it seems as if women's anger has suddenly erupted into the public conversation. But long before Pantsuit Nation, before the Women's March, and before the #MeToo movement, women's anger was not only politically catalytic but politically problematic. The story of female fury and its cultural significance demonstrates the long history of bitter resentment that has enshrouded women's slow rise to political power in America, as well as the ways that anger is received when it comes from women as opposed to when it comes from men. Rebecca Traister tracks the history of female anger as political fuel -- from suffragettes chaining themselves to the White House to office workers vacating their buildings after Clarence Thomas was confirmed to the Supreme Court. Here Traister explores women's anger at both men and other women; anger between ideological allies and foes; the varied ways anger is perceived based on its owner; as well as the history of caricaturing and delegitimizing female anger; and the way women's collective fury has become transformative political fuel, as is most certainly occurring today. She deconstructs society's (and the media's) condemnation of female emotion (notably, rage) and the impact of their resulting repercussions. Highlighting a double standard perpetuated against women by all sexes, and its disastrous, stultifying effect, Traister offers a glimpse into the galvanizing force of women's collective anger, which, when harnessed, can change history
All the single ladies : [unmarried women and the rise of an independent nation] by Rebecca Traister( Recording )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2009, the award-winning journalist Rebecca Traister started this, a book she thought would be a work of contemporary journalism, about the twenty-first century phenomenon of the American single woman. It was the year the proportion of American women who were married dropped below fifty percent; and the median age of first marriages, which had remained between twenty and twenty-two years old for nearly a century (1890-1980), had risen dramatically to twenty-seven. But over the course of her vast research and more than a hundred interviews with academics and social scientists and prominent single women, Traister discovered a startling truth: the phenomenon of the single woman in America is not a new one. And historically, when women were given options beyond early heterosexual marriage, the results were massive social change, temperance, abolition, secondary education, and more

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Part 4. When we read about great women in history books, or see them in paintings, we don't always get the full picture. For example, the great feminist foremother. You probably think these were women of great principle, and you'd be right. But how tough was it for them to stick to those principles. You'd probably be surprised to know that many of them faced struggles not unlike those we face today. Lori Marso is the author of Feminist Thinkers and the Demands of Femininity: The Lives and Work of Intellectual Women. The book details some of the struggles early feminist intellectuals and the women who laid the foundations for modern feminism. Over the next few weeks we'll be talking with Lori about a few of those women and their challenges. We start today with England's first great feminist, Mary Wollstonecraft. (6:31)
