In a review of Hanna Rosin’s The End of Men and The Rise of Women, Katelyn Beaty quotes the following statistics:
- Women held about half of the nation’s jobs, after a recession in which three-quarters of all jobs lost belonged to men.
- Women hold 51 percent of all managerial/professional jobs, up from 26 percent in 1980.
- Over 60 percent of accountants are women; 45 percent of law firm associates are as well.
- Though the top corporate jobs remain the bastion of men, with women composing just 3 to 6 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs, they are highly prized, out-earning their male counterparts by 43 percent. [emphasis mine][Note: Equal work for equal pay?]
- Today, a married woman contributes on average 42.2 percent of her family’s income, up from 4 percent in 1970.
- In 1965, married women reported an average of 9.3 hours of paid work each week and about 10 hours of child care. Today’s married woman does an average of 23.2 hours of paid work each work, as well as more child care—13.9 hours.
Steven Andrews, a stay-at-home dad interviewed by Rosin, sums up the new reality well: “I’m just the mediocre house dude.” Sarah, his very-pregnant, lawyer wife, “feed[s] the family” and “make[s] big money.” She’s the “superstar.”
Consider this little blurb:
In the video, two reasons were given for women’s lib:
- Half the population (women) was untaxable.
- Working mothers meant children spent more time in schools and away from their families where they could be indoctrinated.
Feminism again proves itself to be nothing more than a social tool for socialist engineering. And feminists actually think it is for the good of women. No, it’s for the good of the progressive elites who are trying to replace Western Civilization with Socialism.
