Spinster = Freedom?

In 2011, Kate Bolick’s Atlantic Monthly cover story “All the Single Ladies” revolutionized the way we think about unmarried women and launched a world-wide conversation. Her new memoir Spinster shows us that contemporary debates about settling down, and having it all, are timeless.

In this video, Bonnie McFarlane takes to the streets to find out how people define “Spinster” today.

An interview with NPR’s Rachel Martin was also featured yesterday on Weekend Edition Sunday.

Bolick is on Twitter @katebolick and has a nice website.
