The End of Men
"Machos have had their best time"!
Man has been the dominant sex since, well, the dawn of mankind. But for the first time in human history, that is changing—and with shocking speed. These are the first sentences of an article in my weekly magazine of September 7.
It quotes an article that appeared last July in The Atlantic Magazine.Now mothers say: We want a girl!.
This subject only shows how the world has evolved since I was a young girl.
These mothers look at their lives and think their daughters will have a bright future their mother and *grandmother didn’t have, brighter than their sons, even, so why wouldn’t they choose a girl?”
What a privilege those girls have. I really envy them a little.
They are the lucky ones. What a great future they have, I wish them all success!
That they may conquer their place in society!
I would say -- go for it girls!
PS: *I'm also a grandmother.
I still want to add: I had written this post in draft before I'd read Jeannie's exceptional beautiful story.
Actually hindsight seen I find this post is a complement to her story.
It shows what previous brave generations of women have achieved with their battle for the equality between men and women.
Probably the courageous old lady in Jeannie's story wasn't in the possibility to study when she was young.
Now her dream came true!
It's only so unfortunately that she couldn't enjoy it long.
