Bolick’s story, “All the Single Ladies,” drew over a million readers, spawned countless published responses and inspired a heated debate on the modern notions of romance, family, career and success. When her story was published in 2011, it marked only the third time in the magazine’s history that a female author appeared on the cover. Interest for her article was so intense that it landed her a book deal, “Among the Suitors: Single Women I Have Loved,” and Sony optioned the story for a television series.

Bolick regularly contributes to Elle, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Slate. She has also appeared on “The Today Show,” “CBS Sunday Morning,” CNN, “The Gayle King Show,” MSNBC and others.
