Binah: Rebecca Traister Traces The History Of Unmarried Women In America

Author and columnist Rebecca Traister traces the history of unmarried women in America and the resulting social changes when women are given options beyond traditional marriage.

She appeared at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco in 2016, to discuss her book, All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation. She was joined in conversation by author and journalist Peggy Orenstein.

David Kwan is the editor and producer of Binah, featuring remarkable artists and thinkers who’ve come to speak at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco as part of their Arts & Ideas program.
