We women have come a long way in the last few decades. We have female CEOs, the option to take our babies to work, nannies, Mac and cheese in a box for working moms, and a whole lot more.
I had lunch with a friend today who told me more about her ex-husband. He was charming and “won” her, they got married and then he turned into a different person. He became very traditional and demanded dinner on the table 7 days a week even though she was the primary breadwinner. He would go for a run, but she had no time for exercise.
I talked to another friend about birth control. The options for women kind of stink. You can put hormones in your body in a variety of ways (that have all kinds of side effects), you can put stuff in your body, or you can have major surgery. Boy, if that doesn’t get you in the mood, I don’t know what will!
This all led me down a feminist tirade. How is it in 2014 that women are still making less $ for the same job as men and some ladies still have get dinner on the table? That we can’t figure out a wholistic, healthy method of birth control?
We can put a man on the moon and invent google glasses but we can’t figure out how to provide equitable pay?
I’m not mad at men, I just get upset by the system in our country every once in awhile.
I personally feel very blessed to have a partner who loves to cook, help kids with homework, play sports and is very supportive. A couple nights this week he has had dinner on the table when I got home, and he works more than full time! Thanks honey. Xo
I’m just saying, it’s time for a little equality, behind closed doors. Dinners and birth control, lets start there. Fellas that support their women are wonderful advocates and allies and we love that. That’s an excellent start. Now somebody just invent a pill for men and teach more guys how to cook, then we will be starting a revolution of quiet equality. I support that.
