Sixth and I Historic Synagogue - Sixth & I Historic Synagogue
In her November 2011 cover story in The Atlantic “All the Single Ladies,” Kate Bolick asserts that “recent years have seen an explosion of male joblessness anda steep decline in men’s life prospects that have disrupted the “romantic market” in ways that narrow a marriage-minded woman’s options,” to deadbeats and playboys. But amid this strange state of affairs, Bolick sees an opportunity to “acknowledge the end of “traditional” marriage as society’s highest ideal.”One of The Atlantic’s most-talked-about stories in recent years, Bolick discusses her article and subsequent public reaction with Hanna Rosin, a senior editor at The Atlantic and author of the book End of Men; and Garance Franke-Ruta, a senior editor at The Atlantic."
