in ancient times, and yet not too long ago, women were ruled by men. understandabily so, for historically, brute strength determined the winner. women were naturally relegated to the role of domesticated property. they were often "owned or married" by force and taught the virtues of being docile and complacent and servile. words that are still found in a typical matrimonial advert to this day.
now, when hardly any accomplishment relies upon physical strength (unless you count a career in wrestling or thai boxing). the tables have turned. women refuse to change to their husbands surname after marriage. women are earning more than their men. battles are being fought at a celebral level and women are now heads of big businesses. but can they also be the head of the family? have the tables really turned or are we living with many of those old vestiges still embedded in our psyche? is this for the better or worse? can there be equality? can equality exist? (or should there be a lesser ego for a more perfect fit?) i sit and watch, as the days go by :)
