In conversation with Scott Stossel, Bolick discussed her new book: Spinster: Making a Life of One's Own, where Bolick uses her personal experiences to explore why she, and more than 100 million American women, remain unmarried today. Pulling back the curtain on pioneering, unmarried women across the centuries, Bolick examines the need to build our lives on our own terms, by our own rules, and with our own ideas of family. The interview investigated what women living their adult lives alone (if only for a time) means for society, and unwrapped Bolick's vision of single life as a positive and viable way to live.
