Incendiary feminist and bestselling author Clementine Ford presents the case against marriage for the modern woman.

Exploring the origins of marriage as a form of property transaction and tool of diplomacy, Clem overturns society's enduring beliefs in her provocative and persuasive fourth book.

She queries the myth of marriage's essentiality to a woman’s wellbeing, considers how expectations of wedded bliss are maintained through popular culture, and questions why our culture still emphasises marriage as our most important relationship.

Join Clem in conversation as she rallies for a world beyond marital ties and shows us what it could look like for women.
