"ladies these day's don't know how lucky they are"


I can't help but think this is just a "you young women don't appreciate your freedome" speach, rather than someone being blatantly ignorant to pressent day sexism.

We get it. We know that women 30,40,50,60, 500 years ago had way worse than we do now. But did the women of the 60's roll over and say, "hey, at least we don't have it as bad the women 50 years ago?!" and therefore dropped a pursuit of equaility? NO! They didn't.

Then there are dumb statements like these:

"Men have them and are terrifically interested in them till about 45," she said, "and then their interests can shift to their wives and families. But working women, they don't have time, so they don't have this other fall-back situation."

Which I find quite insulting. Cause you know, men's families are "fall-back plans" when their jobs are no longer fulfilling...great..

I'm sure she didn't mean it quite like that... I hope she didn't mean it quite like that.
