Never-Married Women

“In a 2011 study, researchers at the University of Missouri explored the pressures faced by middle-class, never-married women. They found that these women experien- ced a heightened sense of deviant visibility within their families and communities (especially at events like weddings, even more especially during bouquet toss) and that, conversely, they were made to feel invisible and incon- sequential in social environments in which the default expectation is that all adult women are wives and/or mothers. The study was headlined, "I'm a Loser, I'm Not Married, Let's All Just Look at Me.”
