I don't want someone who will agree with me all the time.
Women don't go into the workplace soley because they are greedy. They want to use their talents to make a difference in the world, they want to provide economic value to their families, they want to have choices and autonomy. Meanwhile an ever increasing amount of men are strengthening their ties to the home and their children, not because they do not like their work, but because they want to enjoy what they are working for. "Society" will respond to the dictates of it's members. The more professionals of either gender who ask their employers for flex-time, part-time, and on-site daycare, the more companies will respond to keep their talent. We are starting to realize that we can't shift one parent to the workplace without compensating in the home. Society has changed many times, and it will change in response to this concern. We now have the Family Medical Leave Act and more and more men are takin advantage of it. Instead of crying for the good old days, our generation has the oppurtunity to shape better days.
