The last 3 female co-workers we had to replace decided to be full time moms.
So, please, explain how lowering the expectations of every woman that soldiers on and not go be full time moms/wifes is improving our lives?
This is nothing but a short term gain with longer term side effects. A few women now cling to those handicaps to reap the easy benefits, while contributing to the overall notion that woman can't still be equal because, well, they still need the handicap.
But go on. convince yourself of what you want and enjoy the brief spotlight.
