Why All The Single Ladies?

Terri Gross had two interesting back to back interviews earlier this month.

In this interview with Vanity Fair writer Nancy Jo Sales, Sales discusses the effect of teen men's exposure to porn on his sexual practises with women he dates/sleeps with, as being well basically, misogynistic.  She cites specific examples where men threaten girls he's just met to send him nude photos of herself, as well as treating her exceptionally 'rough' when being intimate.

In this interview with Rebecca Traister, Traister discusses the huge, enormous influx of single women, citing the statistic that the median age for first married women has increased from early 20s to the late 20s over the past 25 years, as well as that for the first time ever single adult women outnumber married women in the U.S.

I couldn't help but speculate as to a correlation between these two interviews; perhaps women are marrying later, or deciding they're best not marrying at all due mistreatment they've received from men?
