Issue #35: On Spinsterhood
Deadline: June 5, 2007
Feminists have devoted much discussion to the topics of feminist motherhood and feminism and marriage, but the issues facing feminists who, by choice or by happenstance, do not have children or a life partner are often ignored. What is feminist spinsterhood? How does one become a spinster? What are the cultural representations of spinsters? Do Lesbians and women of color face different issues as spinsters? At what age does one become a spinster, and does the answer to that question mean that all spinsters face ageism? What are the caretaking needs of old spinsters, and how can we as a community care for one another if we choose not to have children or primary sexual relationships? Contribute your celebrations and explorations of the
solitary feminist woman.
