I AM WOMAN! HEAR ME... call for help?

We started off being the representation of the home. We cooked, we cleaned, we raised some hoodlums, and we played wifey. Then, after a lot of hard work, we got to play with the big boys. We got educated, we have careers, We Are Free!!

Or are we? As a woman of this era, are we bounded even more by societal expectations? Sometimes it can seem like we must strive to have an education and a challenging career, and yet, still have a happy home complete with a man, house, kids, walk in closets and maybe a garden too. Don’t forget, as a modern woman,  you should be making dinner and while the kiddies are playing in the back, you should be tweeting your latest fashion craving while checking all those pertinent emails from the office.

We may have finally become free to choose the path we want to take in life, but did that freedom mean that society would allow us to lose it’s expectations from the past? Maybe not, but that doesn’t mean that we have to play by those rules! Life is short and we only have one to live, so whatever you decide to pursue, make sure that you are doing it for you.. run free ladies, and hope nothing holds you back!
