Fuck Happiness: How Women Are Left Behind By the Science of Psychology

by Ariel Gore

Why do men have a monopoly on happiness?

Ariel Gore became fascinated with the increased study of human happiness; particularly of interest to Gore was the conclusion that many people had been making that "women with traditional values...those who had made 'an effort to expect less'—were more content than women with feminist values". Bluebird is not only an in-depth study of women's happiness, but it is also a study of the lives of women, their desires, aspirations, and how joy fits into their lives in multifaceted ways.

    An insightful observer, Gore notes that the things she thought might make her happy did not, and she notes further that a vast majority of books on happiness and positive psychology have been written by men...puzzled and intrigued by that, but she was irritated, too, and began her own exploration of women’s happiness through hundreds of interviews.
