This entire discussion shows an absolute lack of respect for women. To begin with, the wealthy and their strange ways aside for a moment, women who
are not in the work force, who work incredibly long hours with children and household affairs, are full time workers, earning their full partnership,
and doing their fare share. Women who go out and work on top of this, and these ones are the gifted ones, with health, because as Dr. Joyce Brothers
once said, while many women can have it all (family, home, and career) they can't do it well at the same time and usually do this in stages,
providing they have good energy and health.
My grandfather, a man ahead of his times in days before marital laws changed to ensure that both husbands and wives were equals in their work, and
were doing work of equal value in their relationships and therefore women were co-owners of the assests, put the house in both of their names. He had
his own logging company and when he was off and grandma took a short time job in the packing house, he hurried back to work, telling his crew, you
don't want to do what they do. He never once asked my grandmother what she did all day again. Her job never ended. And the multitasking was a bit
There were studies done to show how much you'd have to pay to independently franchise out the work, and trust me, you just don't have that coin.
What women do is irreplacable.
Now as to their rights and abilities to work. No one gives them rights. They are full citizens and will not allow anyone to take their rights or
freedoms from them. However, they dont need to be the main workers and the main home care team, because that still amounts to one person doing more
than she should.
