In this lively and colorful book of popular history, journalist Betsy Israel shines a light on the old stereotypes that have stigmatized single women for years and celebrates their resourceful sense of spirit, enterprise, and unlimited success in a world where it is no longer unusual or unlikely to be unwed. Drawing extensively on primary sources, including private journals, newspaper stories, magazine articles, advertisements, films, and other materials from popular media, Israel paints remarkably vivid portraits of single women -- and the way they were perceived -- throughout the decades. From the nineteenth-century spinsters, of New England to the Bowery girls of New York City, from the 1920s flappers to the 1940s working women of the war years and the career girls of the 1950s and 1960s, single women have fought to find and feel comfortable in that room of their own. One need only look at Bridget Jones and the Sex and the City gang to see that single women still maintain an uneasy relationship with the rest of society -- and yet they radiate an aura of glamour and mystery in popular culture. As witty as it is well researched, as thoughtful as it is lively, Bachelor Girl is a must-read for women everywhere.

"When the owner of the New York Yankees baseball team, Colonel Jacob Ruppert, takes Helen Winthrope, a young actress, under his wing, she thinks it's because of his guilt over her father's accidental death--and so does Albert Kramer, Ruppert's handsome personal secretary. Helen and Albert develop a deepening bond the closer they become to Ruppert, an eccentric millionaire who demands their loyalty in return for his lavish generosity. New York in the Jazz Age is filled with possibilities, especially for the young and single. Yet even as Helen embraces being a 'bachelor girl'--a working woman living on her own terms--she finds herself falling in love with Albert, even after he confesses his darkest secret"--

Inspired by their fascination with all things Sherlock Holmes, best friends and flatmates Merinda and Jem launch a consulting detective business. The deaths of young Irish women lead Merinda and Jem deeper into the mire of the city's underbelly. While searching for answers, donning disguises, and sneaking around where no proper ladies would ever go, they pair with Jasper Forth, a police constable, and Ray DeLuca, a reporter in whom Jem takes a more than professional interest. Merinda could well be Toronto's premiere consulting detective, and Jem may just find a way to put her bachelor girlhood behind her forever--if they can stay alive long enough to do so.

A gorgeous facsimile edition of Agnes M. Miall's classic 1916 volume, this is a charming resource for the modern-day ‘girl on her own’. Truly a 'Guide to Everything', the straight-talking Mrs Miall offers timeless advice on a minefield of everyday dilemmas from how to be successful in your career: ‘When dealing with employers or fellow-workers who are men, try to forget that you are a woman’; to how to avoid unwelcome advances, ‘walk along briskly and purposefully, not staring at anyone; loitering and aimless strolling are to be avoided. If spoken to in spite of precautions, a decided answer or a cold stare will usually end the annoyance’. With instructive gems on every page, this delightful piece of retro is a revealing window onto the life of a single woman during the first world war, and at the same time a hilarious reminder that sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same!

George Gissing's realist representations of urban culture in fin-de-siècle London testify to the significance of the city for the development of new class and gender identities. Emma Liggins considers standard works such as The Odd Women and New Grub Street, and lesser known short fiction, arguing that Gissing made an important contribution to the development of urban fiction, which increasingly reflected current debates about women's presence in the city.

In dit boek krijgt de lezer een beeld van alleenstaande vrouwen en hoe ze gezien werden doorheen de tijd. De auteur schetst deze levendige portretten met behulp van dagboeken, kranten en andere populaire media. Alleenstaande vrouwen hebben in de voorbije decennia gevochten voor een eigen ruimte, waarin ze comfortabel kunnen zijn, van de 'spinsters' van New England en 'The Bowery girls' van New York, tot de carrièremeisjes van de jaren 1950 en 1960. Dat alleenstaande vrouwen vandaag nog steeds een ongemakkelijke relatie hebben met de maatschappij, maar toch mysterie en glamour kunnen uitstralen, blijkt uit Bridget Jones en de meisjes van Sex and the City. Het boek werpt een licht op de stereotiepen die alleenstaande vrouwen hebben gestigmatiseerd en viert hun vindingrijkheid, ondernemingszin en succes in een wereld waarin het niet langer ongewoon of onwaarschijnlijk is om niet gehuwd te zijn.

A drug panic. Murder. Terrifying and mysterious black and Chinese immigrants. Dope Kings. Jazz. War. An actress dead of an overdose. Dope Girls is about the transformation of drug use into a national menace. It revolves around the death in 1918, in the last furious stages of the First World War, of Billie Carleton, a West End-musical actress. Its cast of characters includes Brilliant Chang, a Chinese restaurant proprietor, and Edgar Manning, a jazz drummer from Jamaica. Around them, in the streets off Shaftesbury Avenue and in Chinatown, swirled a raffish group of seedy and rebellious hedonists. And so the drug problem was born amid a gush of exotic tabloid detail.

For centuries, people have been thinking and writing—and fiercely debating—about the meaning of marriage. Just a hundred years ago, Progressive era reformers embraced marriage not as a time-honored repository for conservative values, but as a tool for social change. In Until Choice Do Us Part, Clare Virginia Eby offers a new account of marriage as it appeared in fiction, journalism, legal decisions, scholarly work, and private correspondence at the turn into the twentieth century. She begins with reformers like sexologist Havelock Ellis, anthropologist Elsie Clews Parsons, and feminist Charlotte Perkins Gilman, who argued that spouses should be “class equals” joined by private affection, not public sanction. Then Eby guides us through the stories of three literary couples—Upton and Meta Fuller Sinclair, Theodore and Sara White Dreiser, and Neith Boyce and Hutchins Hapgood—who sought to reform marriage in their lives and in their writings, with mixed results. With this focus on the intimate side of married life, Eby views a historical moment that changed the nature of American marriage—and that continues to shape marital norms today.
