The NY Steering Committee of Stanford University Michelle R. Clayman Institute for Gender Research invites alumni and guests to:
A Dinner Party and Discussion with
Stanford Alumna and Author
Kamy Wicoff ‘94
While we enjoy an evening of cocktails and dinner together, Kamy will discuss her latest book, I DO BUT I DON’T, an “analytical memoir” which uses Kamy’s personal experience as a modern American bride to pursue a broader inquiry into what contemporary weddings tell us about contemporary women.
Containing interviews with more than eighty other women (aged 23 to 40, daughters of the baby-boomers), and filled with both scholarly and popular research, I DO BUT I DON’T takes a clear-eyed look at each stage of wedding. Beginning with proposals and ranging from diamond engagement rings to ten thousand dollar wedding dresses to bachelorette parties and more, Kamy explains both the personal and the cultural meanings of all the trappings, arguing passionately that in the end, the way we marry matters very much indeed.
