Obama’s Rules for Revolution

The Two-Income Trap

For many years, feminists have complained that they are short-changed in life by the patriarchy because their childcare and household duties prevent them from pursuing an exciting career in the labor force.

And of course, the feminists demand government-paid daycare for all children while their mothers are in supposedly working in more exciting careers. Feminists are usually true-believers in the foolishness of the founder of feminism, Betty Friedan, who famously said that care for babies is a demeaning occupation for an educated woman.
