What women want. . .
Topic: Society 3:48 pm EDT, Aug  2, 2005

Not that I consider MSN an amazing journalistic resource, I was interested in this article. It addresses the decades-old question of whether women can have careers and families. Everyone likes to think that they can "have it all", but life clearly shows that we cannot. You can't eat anything you want AND have a perfect body. You can't party all the time AND get great grades You also can't have hugely successful (read high paying and prestigious) career AND raise your four children at home.

To me the question boils down to, what do you want? What do you value? What is most important to you? What are you willing to sacrifice aren't you willing to sacrifice?

I have many friends in denial about this. I know I am - I'm in law school, yet I can't imagine my kids being in daycare.

Now, maybe some will read this and scream "why can't men be the ones to stay at home?" I have no problem with that, just show me some men who are willing and some women who make enough to support a family in this inequitable society. Until then, it's a question for women to answer. What do we really want out of life?
