All the Single Ladies
April 12th, otherwise known as Equal Pay Day, marks how far in the year that women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year. It also means a special TalkPoverty podcast on the rise of unmarried women in America. These days, more and more American women are waiting to put a ring on it – including yours truly, Rebecca and Tracey. This week, we sat down with critically-acclaimed author and journalist Rebecca Traister to discuss this new generation of unwed women and its implications on work, family, and the future of America.
