Inspiration comes from many avenues. In our WISE Bookshelf feature, members share some of the titles that have encouraged them to think outside of the box, try a new approach, dig down deep for the confidence they needed to make that big decision or simply allowed them a reprieve from the daily grind. Happy reading!


All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation
by Rebecca Traister
Genre: Non-Fiction


I read this book in about three days. It effectively tackles the phenomenon of young women in their path for professional growth and how that relates to their personal life. The median age of when women get married is 27. This has a large impact on social, cultural and political norms, of which the United States has not necessarily caught up to. It takes a look at progress of gender equality and how far we still have to go.
