You've met the extra woman: she's sophisticated, she lives comfortably alone, she pursues her passions unabashedly, and--contrary to society's suspicions--she really is happy. Despite multiple waves of feminist revolution, today's single woman is still mired in judgment or, worse, pity. But for a brief, exclamatory period in the late 1930s, she was all the rage. A delicious cocktail of cultural history and literary biography, The Extra Woman transports us to the turbulent and transformative years between suffrage and the sixties, when, thanks to the glamorous grit of one Marjorie Hillis, single women boldly claimed and enjoyed their independence.flaps.
Today's single woman is often mired in judgment or pity. Discover the transformative years between suffrage and the sixties, when, thanks to Marjorie Hillis, single women boldly claimed and enjoyed their independence. In 1936 Hillis published a radical self-help book: Live Alone and Like It: A Guide for the Extra Woman. From the importance of a peignoir to the joy of breakfast in bed (alone), Hillis's tips made single life desirable and chic. Scutts explores the revolutionary years following the Live-Alone movement, and examines other innovative lifestyle gurus who celebrated guiltless female independence and pleasure.
