I am one of those women who went to work in the 70’s,had a family, and has stuck it out through today. And what you said about the glass ceiling and the idiot next to you has not changed.

I’m at a point of figuring out a way to get out of this rat race but am hampered by financial considerations. Namely where does the money come from to maintain a comfortable retirement lifestyle when the time comes since my husband’s and my 401Ks were decimated and our equity in our home destroyed in the financial meltdown.

What it comes down to is feeling that women were sold a bill of goods. Rather than have it all it really meant do it all. So yeah there are days that it seems like my mothers generation had it not so bad, and if I happened to find some standing stones with a Jamie on the other side I just might take a walk through them.
