On Being a Feminist (7)

12 Dec

I am one of the lucky ones. Let me be very clear on this. I have wonderful, supportive parents and family, who are proud of my accomplishments, who would have been proud of me not matter what.

I have an amazing husband who has known from the beginning that I would be the primary earner, and does not feel threatened by it. (And does his share of the housework.)

I work in a field where women are prevalent in executive positions.

But just because I haven’t felt discriminated against doesn’t give me the luxury of pretending the problem doesn’t exist.
