Author of the Blockbuster Atlantic Cover Story "All the Single Ladies"
When Kate Bolick's 2011 Atlantic story, “All the Single Ladies” was published, it marked only the third time in the magazine's storied history that a female author had appeared on the cover. Interest in Bolick's marquee article was so intense that it landed her a book deal, and is now being made into a show on CBS. Her latest book, Among the Suitors: Single Women I Have Loved, is forthcoming from Crown.
Bolick has appeared on The Today Show, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, The Gayle King Show, and numerous NPR programs across the country.
CBS has given a script commitment to a single-camera, half-hour show based on Bolick's "All the Single Ladies" Atlantic story. Bolick will serve as co-producer.
All the Single Ladies
After a half century of ascent for women, which coincided with the descent of men, we've reached a historical point where career-minded women are finding fewer suitable mates, and are marrying later and in fewer numbers. At the workplace and on university campuses, women are literally and figuratively leaving men behind, surpassing them in terms of sheer numbers and opportunities. They will soon dominate the workforce and the economy. What does this mean for women, for men, and for our society? Based on her Atlantic cover story, Kate Bolick makes sense of these seismic demographic changes. With light humor and deep expertise, she implores us to embrace new ideas about dating, working, having a family, and what it means to be successful.
