Scripps' vision for women is seen in Claremont college she founded

It opened in the heart of the Roaring '20s, when women for the first time were given the chance to leave the confines of home and family and take an active place in society. Full Story

Women leaving the home and taking an active role in the planning of society (scary phrase) has been a disaster.
Women and men are grossly different -- not just physically, but emotionally and psychologically. We process and respond to the world differently -- I dare say in opposite fashion.
Women tend to make decisions based on emotions, the concrete, and the sensory immediate. This is wonderful for nesting and nurturing (micro-decision making).
Men tend to make decisions based on reason, the abstract, and the long-term -- better for macro-decision making (larger issues such as economics, national defense, politics in general).
Women, especially single women and single mothers, value security more than liberty.
Women thrive in cooperative, rather than competitive environments.
Women value feeling good over upholding principles.
Women value sharing over creating.
Since men tend to defer to rather than compete with women, women and womens' sensibilities outside the home have run amok and wreaked havoc.
The result of women leaving the home and taking a greater role in the planning of society is the expansion of the welfare state at the expense of liberty, personal responsibility, charity, industry, and prosperity, pandering to evil in the world rather than confronting it, spreading wealth rather than creating it, good feelings trumping good behavior, short-term benefit at the expense of long-term damage.
Within the home, the erosion of traditional roles has resulted in damaged marriages, damaged families, damaged men, damaged women, damaged children, damaged culture, and a damaged country.
Women are miserable, having learned that "having it all" has resulted in the betrayal of their most important roles: wife, mother, and homemaker. I read not too long ago that 1 out of every 3 trips by women to the doctor is for anti-depressant medication. A New York Times Magazine study from a few years ago revealed that many women who chose to defer or sacrifice marriage and family or have it all wished they hadn't. Women derive meaning and fulfillment, and therefore happiness, from relationships -- specifically with husband and children. Pursuing advanced education, carrers, and materialism undermine womens' happiness. We may try to have it all, but we may not succeed at doing it all. Common sense should have warned us long ago.
While no one should legally bar women from pursuing higher education (really feminist/leftist indoctrination today) and career, we should stop encouraging girls to take courses in life that will undermine, rather than realize, their happiness.

Perhaps the shame of it all is feminized males going along with the toxic tide.

OMG, Felipe. You might be more comfortable in a country like Afghanistan where you could become a member of the Taliban. There, you could keep those women in line.
