If being a feminine woman in today’s world sometimes feels like walking a tightrope, that’s because it IS. Here are some observations and tips on being feminine at work and in intimate relationships.
There are essentially two ways people view the role of women in society:
Traditionalists: Those who believe that women should go back to their traditional roles at home and stop trying to compete with men in the workplace. Thankfully, these are a dying breed – even in India.
Liberals: Those who believe that women can, and should, compete with men and hold their own in all spheres of life. They seem harmless, but this view can actually be quite damaging.
Here’s why. The problem with these extreme viewpoints is that they are both unfair to women, because neither takes into account what women really want.
The first (traditional) viewpoint denies a woman’s aspirations and desire to express herself creatively in a profession, contribute to society and – in the absence of a male provider – fend for herself and her children.
The second (liberal) viewpoint denies a woman’s innate biological need and desire to nuture a family, have children, and express her creativity in a manner that feels natural to her (cooking, taking care of a home, and all the stuff that makes people like Martha Stewart pots of money).
These extremes also don’t take into account the fact that men have changed too. They no longer want to be desired solely for their earning capability. Most men don’t want women who are golddiggers, and actually PREFER a woman who is able to take care of herself financially.
And why shouldn’t they? After all, men deserve to be loved for who they are, don’t they?
