Tracee Ellis Ross Slams Pressure to Get Married and Have Kids: 'Society Spoon-Feeds It to You' https://t.co/0dIfFQzHlO— People (@people) May 21, 2021
Tracee Ellis Ross is blasting societal pressures placed on women to get married and have children.
When asked by Marie Claire if she once dreamed of getting married and having a family, Ross said, “Well, how could you not? Our society spoon-feeds it to you. I used to put myself to sleep dreaming of my wedding."
“And I would still love all of that, but what am I going to do, just sit around waiting? Shut up. I’ve got so many things to do,” added Ross.
This isn’t the fist time Ross opened up about this, last year she told Porter, “I wish I had known there were other choices, not just about how I could be living, but how I could feel about the way my life was. I was raised by society to dream of my wedding, but I wish I had been dreaming of my life."
