Cairene Women: A “Bachelorette”, Not A “Spinster”: Four "Bachelorettes" Tell Their Stories

 
9783845476575: Cairene Women: A “Bachelorette”, Not A “Spinster”: Four "Bachelorettes" Tell Their Stories

This book proposes that the word “spinster” or “ ‘anes” in Arabic, are to be substituted with the word “bachelorette” or “ ‘azba’ ”. The “bachelorette” is a female who remains single by choice; she is simply an unmarried woman. The word “spinster” is heavily laden with negative and derogatory images, and carries a lot of stigma, that doesn’t fit or apply to the “bachelorette” of today. This book also attempts to answer questions like why change the term "spinster" to "bachelorette"? What sorts of women choose to be "bachelorettes"? What are the social correlations of their decisions? Do "bachelorettes" regard their situation as temporary or permanent? Is the “spinster” stereotype valid? Does being a “bachelorette” destine these females to be less human developed than their married counterparts? Is the “bachelorette” less fulfilled in her “femaleness”, in other words, does she feel less of a female without a husband and children?
