I believe that modern society is causing men and women to be stressed much more than ever before—and if you think about it, we all have much more that we can do in a given day and try to fit into a day than our ancestors did.  One former editor of Cosmopolitan magazine suggests that feminism and the drive for equality between the sexes isn’t helping:

Last month, at a wedding, I got talking to an attractive woman in her early 40s. She had her own business, two lovely young children and a husband who, she said, saw parenting very much as a joint venture.

Yet when she discovered I was the former editor of Cosmopolitan, she raised her eyebrows and, no doubt fuelled by the free-flowing Prosecco, declared, referring to the mantra invented by my former magazine: ‘Having it all, eh? I’ve “got it all”! So can you tell me why I feel so stressed and self-critical, and that I’m not getting anything right the whole time?’

The feminist movement of the past few decades has made a crusade of trying to make the sexes equal in every way—telling women that they could have it all.  They advocate having high power jobs, breaking the glass ceiling, and making as much money as the men around them.

But what if those women don’t want to “have it all?”

learning with pencil I’ve long thought that the fact that “no one fails” in school was something that made the whole thing silly.  Failing has a negative connotation, but it also says that a person needs more work in a given area in order to master it.

That we have taken the teeth out of grading by continuing to process children forward even when they haven’t master basic skills is at the heart of our education problem in America.
