We can make women economically independent but not independent of social custodians.
Why do so many of us believe that married people are easier to have as tenants, children, friends, colleagues and neighbours?
What does ‘squeaky clean background’ indicate? No police records? Morally upright – i.e. never been in a relationship? Teetotallers? Dressed in certain ways?
Do you think unmarried people are seen as either more of a responsibility (for everybody else) or less responsible?
Do you think this is discriminatory?
What is it that makes married men seem safer as tenants/neighbours? And why is single women’s marital status or lifestyle an issue here? What is it that people fear?
