"You have come a long way, baby"
That was a phase that was used
when I was in my 30's.. Of course,
it referred to a cigarette, but it also
was a idea pushed by the NOW
Organization. In the 1970's there
was a big push for women's rights.
Women's right in the job, women's
rights at home, buying power and

to equal pay. Women's rights to
The women have come a long way.
There are women CEO's which was
unheard of, unless your father own
the company. But equal pay is
still a stretch.
But what happen to women in
general. I see women in the
work place. But what about,
women. What have they done
Why do women still think that
there has to be a man in their lives,
so much so they will settle for any man.
Not one that they can enjoy living with,
be married as an equal partner.
But the kind that tells them what to
do. Why do women still cling to the
forceful man, the dominating man?
Where is their back bone?
When I was first married, women didn't
have choices. There were not places for
abused women to go. The general public

So why do women live like
they do? Why do they let a man
dominate their lives? Why

it looks like it is going to be
an abusive situation? We
surely have been shown the
warning signs? I just don't
In this day and age of

And before the people give me
the "You must hate men bit",
the answer is no. There are
some fantastic guys out there
to share your life with. I am
lucky enough to have one.
But women don't HAVE to
have a man. Just like men
don't HAVE to have a woman.
Be whole yourself, before
you decide to blend your
life with a good partner.
