In her last book, she insightfully analysed systemic racism ("Why we matter!"). Now, intersectionality, diversity and equality expert Emilia Roig critically examines our relationship models and calls for the end of marriage. Her thesis: marriage standardises relationships and family, and regulates sexuality, property and labour. It is a key pillar of capitalism and keeps us imprisoned in binary gender roles. Consequently, in her courageous and thought-provoking book “Das Ende der Ehe: Für eine Revolution der Liebe”, Emilia Roig calls for the end of a patriarchal institution. She critically examines the preponderance of couples and explores whether it is possible to love men and overthrow the patriarchy at the same time. Ultimately, abolishing marriage would liberate not only women, but everyone. For only then can we think and live love anew in freedom and as equals. Mod.: Stephanie Rohde
