Spinster is a word that was commonly used in earlier times to refer to women who were unmarried and past a certain age. It was used in a negative sense because women were not allowed to earn a living and were not educated past a certain point. This made marriage their only option to have a decent life. Today, the word is outdated as marriage is not an obligation for most women and they can choose other paths to lead good lives.
