It's good to be a woman

It's Good to Be a Woman: "unlike their mothers and many of their contemporaries, this group of women "had this sense that we had a life of our own, not just one lived through children and husbands."

This view turned out to be an illusion. Now women live a life through big corporations. They threw away their contract with men and they entered into a contract with the Big Org. Because of this we are now living in a female society called consumer society.

What is the next stage of female domination of the society?

The Second Sex

I think a previous generation of women were influenced by Simon de Beauvoir's The Second Sex not by Friedan's Feminine Mystique. Maybe this has something to do with Europe and America divide.

What is the book which influences the current generation of women?

Isn't it interesting that women are so literate and they actualize theoretical writings of other females? Yet another amazing characteristic of females!

The fashion front

I just saw A Rakish History of Men's Wear in New York Public Library. Nice. I learned that women actually appropriated the skirt from man, which was perceived as manly when it was worn as kilt. So fashion is one of the fronts women fight men. Of course women are clear winners in that front. Women, then appropriated pants worn by men and now they are in the process of having men wear skirts but this time as the symbol of femininization of men. Brilliant! I think women are genius. The more I think about this, the more I believe that in less than a quarter century all men will be house husbands enslaved in houses or sex objects entertaining women. What a turnaround.

Mistaken Mystique: Women Win

I just saw this book The Feminine Mistake: Are We Giving Up Too Much? while browsing at Borders in my lunch break. I read the Prologue which contains a well-written story of the metamorphosis of three generations of women from housewife to professional.

Leslie Bennetts' grand mother is a traditional housewife. In the 1930s her husband leaves her and Leslie Bennetts' mother joins the workforce to support her mother because her husband refuses to do so. Leslie Bennetts reads Feminine Mystique and goes into publishing and sheds any vestiges of domesticity her mother still harbored.

This well-written section proves what I have been writing in this blog as the historical trajectory of sisterhood.

Please note how Leslie Bennetts perceives her grand mother. She doesn't realize that her grandmother represents an important stage in the liberation of women from slavery. As I wrote in Women's Independence Day women in the antiquity were slaves and they were confined to the kitchen. Women's first war of independence was conquering the household. This war lasted about a thousand years but women finally became the masters of the house.

The husband was the master of the house. Women fought and won the mastery of the house. Women was so successful that men did not even realize what they lost.

Leslie Bennetts' grandmother was proud of this victory. Her husband did not fulfill his part of the contract and helped the emancipation of women.

One more proof that women are moving full speed ahead toward the enslavement of men in the near future. If anyone has read the book I would like to hear from you. Please leave a comment. This is exciting!
