https://www.smh.com.au/lifestyle/life-and-relationships/before-the-spice-girls-singleness-was-a-sign-of-failure-20210709-p588ei.html In an opinion piece on the Sydney morning herald, an author writes The Spice girls changed a narrative that was extremely important, before the girls, being single in your 20s meant you failed in life, if you were a female. It also took these girls to show that it's important to have a group of girlfriends as an adult, girls was only taught it was acceptable only as a teen like an essential like lip smackers lip gloss. In, 1971 the average age of a married women with her first kid was 21, fast forward 22 years to 1993, it was 23, just two years. She praises HBO series SATC for being progressive, but the narrative was about finding a man, and not accepting that it's ok to be single like Samantha was fine with the single non monogamous lifestyle.. But now thanks to these 5 girls, it's okay to be a female and hook up and have fun, and see men as a meal, not a meal ticket to a good life.
