Oh, and that being a stay at home mom isn't a real job, its a lifestyle choice - and your husband won't take you seriously or look at you as an equal if you don't work and earn as much or more than him.
Elizabeth has never been a mother or wife - so when she says that men look down on their wives who stay home and don't earn a living tells me she's never had a good and supportive man in her life who valued all the assets she brings to the home, marriage and family environment. And I sure look at my husband as more than just a paycheque.
She must really think I'm doing a global injustice to women - I am fully educated and capable of working and earning my own living - but instead I spend my days at home raising my kids and 'homemaking' or as I like to call it, 'domestic engineering'.
To me her article alone is hindering the advancement of women-hood. I don't know much (or anything really) about feminism, but to me, it means equality and choices are provided to women as they are to men. It has nothing to do with bashing a woman who gives up pursuing her career to selflessly raise her children and provide a consistent, healthy, happy and peaceful home for her family.
Ok, I'll end the rant here - here's some more feedback from Babble blogger.
