Willy P said something on another thread that made me think about the reasons I and other women are no longer consenting to what our grandmothers and great-grandmothers had to accept. It isn't about free birth control and unhindered abortions, it's about things like I'm about to say on down below.
First I'll put what Willy P said .....
Apparently, having a career and family is of zero interest to Democrat women. Judging from their political speeches every Democrat politician knows that women are interested only in free birth control and unhindered abortions.
Having a career 'is' one of the things it's about. But it's only that to a certain level ..... it's far more about 'being able to' have a career if we choose. It's having the ability to. We can also have a family if we chose, that is one of our options. The key factor now is it's 'our' option, we're not chosing it because it's the only one open for us.
It's about things like this.
The 2012 Olympics ..... America ..... 104 total medals ..... 58 won by American women (only 45 won by American men)..... 43 of the 58 are gold & silver.
We now earn more college degrees, particularly doctorates, than men. And more of us finish college. We also have a higher GPA ..... grade point average ..... that means we make higher grades than men.
In 2010, for the first time in history, we passed up men and make up a higher percentage of the work force.
We can chose our own path. Or make entirely new paths to follow. The same as men always have, but has never been open to us to do.
This is what it's about. The fight is about not letting controlling men with overbearing egos, double standards, and outdated religious beliefs knock us back down to being what we were a hundred years ago.
