There is a significant progress in the position of women, but also, a very long way to go still:
“In 2010, among families with children,” the study notes, “nearly half (44.8 percent) were headed by two working parents and another one in four (26.1 percent) were headed by a single parent. As a result, fewer than one in three (28.7 percent) children now have a stay-at-home parent, compared to more than half (52.6 percent) in 1975, only a generation ago.”
If you go to the post I linked to, you will see how its pseudo-Liberal author is bemoaning this great development as “white slavery.” Because when women are financially independent and have social and professional realization, that’s slavery. When, however, they don’t have a life outside of servicing their family, that isn’t slavery but something to celebrate.
Closer to the end of the article, there is a grudging admission that there might be some women who work because they actually want to. Yet, according to the pseudo-Liberal blogger, it’s still somehow very tragic that many men can’t keep a housewife of their own.
With Liberals like these, who needs Conservatives?
