careers and what makes them feel complete. ♪ all the single ladies >> i'm very single right now. >> i'm in a four-year relationship. ♪ if you like it you should have put a ring on it ♪ >> i'm single as a dollar bill. >> i'm single. >> five years. we're talking big plans right now. ♪ >> every single party i get asked do you have a boyfriend, are you dating? >> sometimes you don't find the right one right away. >> i never thought about getting married. i don't think i want to. >> i will be devastated if i didn't get married. >> i'm thinking about career goals first. >> i want to able to have enough time for home life and a work life. >> i will always choose my family over my career at the end of the day. >> my career is really important. i can't have a family if i can't support them. >> pushing myself professionally
as much as i can is way more of a priority. >> five years from now i plan to have a family, be married. i plan to marry rich, actually. >> the key to me feeling complete is being my truest and most confident self. >> you have to love yourself as a person to love someone that much to be married. >> rebecca traister, good morning. wow, this is a terrific book. i know you spent five years researching and putting it together. what's interesting, what you found, women choosing to be independent, unmarried before they're married. you say it's now become a mass behavior. what does that mean? >> it means that it's not, even though it leads to sort of unprecedented level of economics, sexual, social independence for women it's not a politicized action in many cases. there was the woman that said i want to prioritize career. sometimes there are practical considerations that we would think of as liberating and revolutionary. this has become the pattern. it used to be between 18909 and
1980, the median age of first marriage for women was between 20 and 22 and didn't go higher than that. now it's 27. it's just become a new pattern for adult female life that marriages begin later and often happen not at all. >> in 1960, young women, 60% of young women were married. now it's only 20% of young women. >> how is that changing us? >> it changes everything. >> us meaning general society. >> it changes everything about the way that the nation works. i mean, our government and our social policies and civic institutions are built with one kind of sort of citizenry pattern in mind. that's the married, hetero married pair in which you have a male earner and female domestic laborer. that's not the way the world works anymore. our tax policies, housing policies, schools let out at 3:00 in the afternoon and have big summer vacations. the assumption is there's a number of our population that will be home to take care of the children. the assumption has always been
they're women. >> what about pay equity? >> their economic base offen is more solid going into marriages they're beginning later in life. they're less likely to pay as big a toll as they have historically when they've entered marriages in the beginning of their lives and become dependent on their husband. >> just in case you can't marry rich. >> right. >> immediately it's changing the election right now. >> yes. well in 2012, unmarried women were 23% of the electorate. >> of course. >> a quarter of the electorate. they vote left, they voted for barack obama 67 to 31 over mitt romney. so -- and because they require a new set of social policies, they're going to have a tremendous impact. so far they've been voting left for bernie. by some number, especially in the pro-dominantly white early states. they're almost certainly going to vote for a democratic
candidate over republican. >> we're seeing that in states across the country? >> oh, absolutely. absolutely. >> not just at the presidential level. >> yes, unmarried women vote democratic. they require a whole new set of social policies that democrats are more likely to be behind. >> what about men, too? men are at the same time marrying late. >> yes, they are. the population of single men is growing. one of the differences is historically men have always been able to live more easily independent lives. they have been more easily able to earn their own living, be economically independent, to have sexual lives that were not judged so harshly if they were having sex outside of marriage. that's relatively new for women as far as being able to have that social independence and have it be a norm instead of a scandalous aberration. >> one of the most fascinating things you point out, the historical significance of single women. this is not the first time they've had a huge impact on our society. >> in the 19th century when so many men went west and were
killed during the civil war, there were not as many men on the east coast. some of the women put their energy toward the development of new professions, teaching secondary education. >> nurses in medicine, nursing and medicine. >> absolutely. many of the pioneers and reformers were unmarried women or unconventionally married women. >> you can only help it means penetration in all the major institutions in america. >> absolutely. you see unmarried women rising in politics. we have so few women of color in politics and increasingly you see unmarried women, single mothers, donna edwards running for senate in maryland. you see all kinds of single women rising. they'll be representing a population that has changed from anything we've ever seen before. >> it's fascinating, really

he gave a historical context for the idea of boycotting. >> both of you gave him straight a's? >> no. >> no. >> i just want to mention one more thing i thought he did was brilliant make the point about there being black oscars and why the gender categories are still in force. i've been saying this -- i wanted to write a story about this and i've been saying three years, the grammys no longer have gender categories. i want to know what would happen -- i think it would change things a lot in terms of how we talk about these things if you eliminated the gender category. >> one of the reasons we continue to have them is women don't tend to lead movies in the same way men do. most of the oscar nominated movies are the story of a hero on a quest. >> i will bet you anything, stuff would change if you just made it support -- ten supporting actor nominees and ten best actor nominees. >> robert de niro says i don't
need to slow down my acting because of merle streep. >> not at all. >> not at all. >> you would have a really interesting conversation when those nominations came out, you know, in january and it was 20. >> what did you like or not like about chris is my question. >> i thought something he did that was interesting was he either repeated the same jock that he did when he hosted the last time or he made a call back where he did a video bit where he went to a movie theater in a black neighborhood. the last time he hosted it was magic johnson theater in harlem. this year he went to compton. >> there is controversy he wasn't there. >> oh, really? >> yes. he asked movie-goers if they had seen some of the nominate films and the sort of broad answer was no. >> yes. >> it was funny when he did it the first time. >> it was brilliant the first timt. >> but coming back to it, it maybe was a little bit weak from a comedy point of view. >> let's talk about leonardo
dicaprio. he used his speech to make a larger point about climate change. good thing? >> oh, absolutely. i think he has been such an activist for environmental causes that would you be surprised if he didn't make that point. >> that is very, as i was saying last night, on brand for leo or leonardo dicaprio because i don't know him! >> did he it smartly? >> yeah. i would have been surprised if he hadn't done it. he has been trumpeting these issues for year. they are real. >> it was a night when a lot of people called out causes that were bigger than the show he themselves which i thought was interesting. it was a moment where people taking the time to use this platform to say this is not just about me winning an award. look at vice president biden and lady gaga putting a call out about stop sexual abuse or the diversity issue obviously. >> the production itself brought out these sexual survivors or
these abuse survivors and i thought that was really powerful. >> that said, wesley, you worked in boston and i worked in boston as well. >> yes. >> i worked -- >> the globe. >> you worked at the "globe" which this story is about. "spotlig "spotlight" raced out to the early lead and backed off. this was a little bit of a surprise. >> yes. it wicame down to three movies. this was -- i mean, when you think about it it's kind of a no-brainer. it's the most important of those, you know, quote, important of those three movies. it's really well made. >> great to see investigative journalism -- >> cheering at home. >> the least divisive between the revenant and that. >> but the narrative also was that sylvester stallone will win for "creed" as best supporting actor? >> people thought he had the
edge. and mark rylance was a surprise of the night. even if you think it's a done deal, all of these, you know, front runners are going to win there is usually a surprise that often comes in the supporting categories and to see somebody like rylance honored for the theater actor, honored to "bridge of spies" for a quieter performance than severylvester stallone did, i think is nice. >> one final thing to say it reminds me to watch the oscars, i mean, good actors, how many good arks we have and really are people out there who do what they do extraordinarily well. >> yes. no, it's great. one thing i will say about this so-called diversity issue is i don't know who was booking the guests or who said no, but all your actors of color came from tv. they were either abc employees or from some other realm of entertainment. very few of them were american.
it was just an interesting optic. >> a subtext that other streams of entertainment are doing it better perhaps than movies. >> here they are to give movie awards to people who -- >> served -- >> yes. >> thank you for being here. >> thanks for having us. >> great to have you here. >> thank you both. you can consider today a gift from a 16th
♪ if you're waking up a little groggy from your oscars party, you may not have noticed that today is a leap day. but what exactly does that mean? jamie wax takes us through times loophole. >> reporter: good morning. that's right. every four year, we have to squeeze an extra day into february. except we don't add an extra day every four of that years, it's divisible by 100 unless it's divisible by 400. in that sounds, confusing it is! we started to dig into leap years and figure out what it's
about and started with one very special leap day birthday embrace the latter. but why does daisy's birthday only come around once every four years? ♪ >> reporter: do you know why we have a leap year? >> no. >> no. >> probably something about the sun? >> to do with the seasons and global warming. >> i don't know. el nino? >> reporter: we decided it might be best to consult an expert.
here is theoretical futurist michio kaku. why do we have a leap year? >> you go around the sun is 365 days is what we learn in school, no? mother nature made it 365 hours plus five hours and 49 minutes and a few odd seconds. that means that every year, we have to compensate for one quarter of a day. so after four years, we have to add one more day. >> reporter: when did we figure out the need for this extra day? it was way back in 46 b.c. julius caesar realized the calendar they were going after wasn't working. together they realized what the egyptians had discovered we need an extra day every four years to stay on track, so he instituted the julien calendar. but even that wasn't quite right. see? the solar year is actually
only .242 days longer than the calendar year and not an even.25. when we add a full day every four years, we are left with a surplus of roughly 11 minutes every year, and that can start to add up. so, finally, in 1582, pope gregory 17th fixed the glitch and instituted the calendar we still follow today. how is it different? i'll let michio kaku explain. >> 11 minutes difference in one year's rotation builds up. and that is why the pope had to intervene and say we have to tweak the julien calendar one more time. so, for example, in the year 1600, that is divisible by 400, there was a leap year, but in 1700 and 1800 and 1900, no, no leap year. then the year 2000 there was a leap year. >> reporter: a lot of tweaking. >> yes. >> reporter: luckily, we have
digital watches to account for all this. >> this particular watch has a wheel in it that turns run revolution every four years to accommodate the extra day. >> reporter: someone engineered a wheel that turns once every four years? >> yes. >> reporter: many of us have to adjust the date on our watches at the end of every everybody but this one does that for you. >> this hand represents the date. >> reporter: in order to see how it works, we looked at one under a microscope. >> a cycle of 48 months for the leap year, so we have a cam of 48. we have 48 lobes and each lobe represents a month. >> reporter: it takes over a year and a half to construct one watch and it will set you back around $85,000. so you have four years to save up for the next leap year. around the world, leap year traditions vary. in greece, it's considered bad luck to get married any day of a leap year. up north a british tradition
says february 29th is the only day a woman can propose marriage to a man. for daisy, her birthday tradition has always been a nice dinner with family and friends. but this year is different. after all, it's not every day you turn 25! one last thing to think before this leap year morning. if you haven't left for work yet, you may want to consider just staying home! after all, if you're a salaried employee your company is getting an extra day of work from you this year for free! >> good point, jamie! >> i wish i knew that before i came to work today. >> what a great story. >> cool stuff. thank you. happy leap day. >> leap day. leap year and leap day. leap everything! you're watching "cbs this morning." we will be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,
