Women are allowed to aspire to more than what we've been told we should want in order to be happy. Let yourself have a bigger dream than becoming the supporting role in someone else's story. Why, when there is so much evidence of the detrimental, suffocating impact marriage has on women's lives, does the myth of marital bliss and necessity still prevail? If the feminist project has been so successful, why do so many women still believe that our value is intrinsically tied to being chosen by a man? In her most incendiary and controversial book to date, Clementine Ford exposes the lies used to sell marriage to women keep them in service to men and male power. From the roots of marriage as a form of property transaction to the wedding industrial complex, Clementine Ford explains how capitalist patriarchal structures need women to believe in marriage in order to maintain control over women's agency, ambitions and freedom. I Don't presents an inarguable case against marriage for modern women. With the incisive attention to detail and razor sharp wit that has characterised her work, Ford examines a broad range of topics, including the patriarchal history of marriage; the insidious and centuries long marketing campaign pop culture has conducted in marriage's favour; the illusion of feminist 'choice' in regard to taking men's names; the physical and social cost that comes with motherhood; and what a different kind of world could look like for women who were allowed to truly be free.
