Bachelor Girl: The Secret History of Single Women in the Twentieth Century

Bachelor Girl: The Secret History of Single Women in the Twentieth Century - Betsy Israel As a single twentysomething myself, I enjoyed reading about of the "spinsters" and "bachelor girls" of American history, and the changing (and yet oddly ahistorical, unchanging) place of the single woman in popular imagination. Israel shows her research and her writing is clever and readable without sounding too informal and discrediting her ideas.
