“I think some men love the idea of a strong independent woman but they don’t want to marry a strong independent woman,”
Rebecca Traister, All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation

“Marriage, it seemed to me, walled my favorite fictional women off from the worlds in which they had once run free, or, if not free, then at least forward, with currents of narrative possibility at their backs. It was often at just the moment that their educations were complete and their childhood ambitions coming into focus that these troublesome, funny girls were suddenly contained, subsumed, and reduced by domesticity.”
Rebecca Traister, All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation

“What [Sarah] Palin so beguilingly represented ... was a form of female power that was utterly digestible to those who had no intellectual or political use for actual women: feminism without the feminists.”
Rebecca Traister, Big Girls Don't Cry: The Election that Changed Everything for American Women
