Do we still need feminism? Hell yes. And nobody knows that better than the women working in male-dominated fields like firefighting and longshoring, like Liane Tessier.

On a side note-it's always interesting to me to see handwritten notes! Quite a difference to European writing..

And also there are husbands who, when both husband and wife are working, leave the wife to handle the home jobs as well.

Some men share in the chores, the children, the schools, the cooking, all the "women's work".

Some men realize it's no longer men's work and women's work, it's OUR work.

I have the greatest respect for the man who mops the floors and irons not only his own but his wife's clothes.

I tend to find that its the older men that find it hard to accept women can do their jobs

You are welcome Anna. Research supports your view that older men are more apt to hold such opinions Carol.You cannot currently send a star to Carol because you have done so within the last day.

Every single sign was true. Women have broken into the ranks of many male-dominated jobs, but they pay a heavy price. They have to be better than men or they are denied equality. They put up with the juvenile behavior the lizard brain dominated men in those jobs are still stuck with. They get paid less for the same work. They are the target of every vile form of discrimination possible and reviled when they complain. Their ability to do the work isn't questioned, at least not much anymore, but they are still treated as if they don't belong, are isolated, excluded and discriminated against. Thing is, when the tide turns and women hold the positions of power in this world, they won't retaliate, they'll simply ensure the work is done correctly and all are treated fairly. I've seen this coming a long time, waited for it a long time and in those occupations where it is already happening, what I said is what I see. Just compare Tammy Baldwin to Rand Paul. See? That is what we can expect when males no longer run the world. Can't happen soon enough for me.
