This week, Jameela is joined by writer, broadcaster and feminist organizer Clementine Ford to discuss the historical roots of marriage as a tool of patriarchal control, the illusions surrounding modern matrimony and the modern marketing machinery that sustains its myth. They discuss the cost & invisible labor in marriage, women’s agency and empowerment in a modern world, the many ways to celebrate ourselves outside of the traditional "Big Day" wedding day and much more.
Clementine Ford's book "I Don't: The Case Against Marriage" is out now.
