“…the chores of the day kill the dreams of a lifetime.” – Melinda Gates
“The rising status of women outside the home has actually increased our inclination to reinforce male domination inside it.” – Darcy Lockman, All the Rage
In most households in the U.S. where both the husband and wife work, the wife still does the majority of the child care and housework.
Does this surprise you?
How on earth can you make the time you want to pursue your dreams when you are trying to both work and handle everything to do with your kids and housework?
You can still make some time, of course, but the mental load of everything is so great that I believe this factor – more than anything else- is the most instrumental in crushing women’s dreams.
This system needs to end.
