I’d say she got the ‘modestly dressed’ part just pitch-perfect

Who wouldn’t want to rush home to this little lady? Anyone? Anyone? Come on guys, look at that resume! Jeeez.

  2. I will take a pass on commenting on her outfit and simply say that she does not strike me as someone who would be quiet and modest.

  8. As with most cultural conundrums, this one has no clear or easy answers. Except for the Biblical ones of course. Placing women alongside men in stressful jobs away from home for extended periods is a big problem. Women who want to bear and raise children and also have an important job risk doing both poorly. But relying on ancient, out-of-context and inconsistent scripture for guidance on the subject is just dumb.

    • Jim , a point of disagreement: only a minority of children in the US are raised in two parent households today. Work (alongside men in stressful jobs) is not a choice. It’s necessity. And I will totally disagree that women therefore do both poorly. Half the women I know are raising or have raised kids alone – as owrking women – and done a fine job.

      We do have a problem here though because we continue to ignore the need for affordable day care but put the blame on the wage earner (often in low paying jobs) if kid isn’t properly supervised.

      • Well Moe, I didn’t say that women would do both family and work poorly, just that it is a risk. Jobs, especially competitive ones, are stressful and that carries over to the home. Combine that with the time pressures that build up for shopping, cleaning and home maintenance spells trouble to me. I think it also contributes to the financial burden because there’s not only day care but she then has to have more wardrobe and commuting expense, and then because of time constraints her job usually leads to more lunches and dinners out and more prepared foods (e.g., “TV dinners) at home which are not only expensive but of poor nutrition. And then the kids get less quality time when Mom works. In my opinion, this cultural spiral is responsible for much of society’s woes, and that includes health problems like obesity, allergies, and ADHD.

        Look, I know this line of reasoning is a lost cause. Americans are not going to embrace deferred gratification and a simpler life style – that’s not our culture. But hell, I’m a geezer so I hope I’m entitled to some fantasies.

        • Well Jim,, as one geezer to another . . . I’d agree 100% with what you said if you would change one thing – ‘mother’ to ‘parent’.

            Dads and Moms interchangeable? That’s an easy one, Moe. Absolutely. Thus the conclusion: “Homemaker” is no trivial job and when done right its challenges rival those on the business scene.

            • Then we’re on the same page. It’s a hell of a challenge to raise kids when there cannot be a parent at home. Now, on to dealing with affordable day care . . .

  11. The status of women clearly shakes the very foundation of a society. It’s easy to point at the Arab countries but it was only one hundred years ago that (that liberal icon) President Wilson ordered suffragists treated much as we’re presently treating Guantanomo prisoners — imprisoned and force-fed and the wardens ordered them beaten. Compare to racism: Black men had the vote more than 50 years ahead of women. It’s ironic that the most marginal people are the most resistant to change. As Eric Hoffer pointed out, it takes a certain middle class comfort to advocate for radical change.

    • Pat – that is exactly what it’s about. Women gaining any kind of power is very threatening to the male hierarchy. It’s no longer a patrimony, but as you note, it wasn’t very long ago . . .
