Certainly not beyond the parish level or the community/neighbourhood level. Its a family's duty to protect them as minors, so that immediately rules out pre-18 employment. When they are at uni they should be 100% committed to education so there is no mandate for it there either and when they graduate that is the time they should be married/preparing for motherhood, upon which it is the duty of the inlaws family to take care of her/her childrens welfare in exchange for looking after their home.
Allowing a daughter/wife to enter the cut and thrust of industry is imo absolutely savage and at most they should do no more than baking or sewing in a church hall in addition to their household duties. The consequences of male unemployment are far more devastating for society but the status quo with women drinking, travelling, working has led to nothing but destruction of our communities. Reverting to the pre 60s society is essential if you are to tackle the epidemics of divorce, alcoholism, homelessness, teen pregnancy and unemployment. But then those societies that advocate this sort of tribal society (Libya, Syria) always get taken out by the system.
I mean automation in and of itself will probably render a single earner household more viable, depressing costs and increasing the earnings a single earner can make in less time.
I doubt many women want to be working full time when they could be spending that time raising their kids, especially during their formative years. Would they want to enter the workforce if they did not feel they had to for financial reasons? I’m sure some would, but the majority? If I were a woman I don’t think I’d see the appeal since there’s more to life than some empty career.
Damn. I’ve never considered myself a feminist but you guys may make me reconsider,
I can’t believe the only value you see in your mother, sister, girlfriend etc., is to pop out babies.
Nice trolls. (If you are serious then you are stupid, things changed because it was worse off than before.)
This might be hard for you to believe but some women actually don't want children, so having a good career and going to work would be very important to those women.
We are not in the middle ages you know
