Feminist and Worthy
Miss MoneyPenny of the Financial Times FT aka as Heather McGregor is a self-declared Female Breadwinner and proud of it. She seems to take it all in her stride and enjoy the role. Good on her I say.
In her column on 5th May, she wrote
“I am currently reading, pre-publication, a self-help book on how to cope with being a female breadwinner. Perusing the bibliography, I was astonished to find how much has been written on the subject. As long ago as 2002 Randi Minetor wrote a book called Breadwinner Wives and the Men They Marry: How to Have a Successful Marriage While Outearning Your Husband. More recently we have seen Female Breadwinners: How They Make Relationships Work and Why They are the Future of the Modern Workforce by Suzanne Doyle-Morris.
I must say that this all seems a bit feminist and worthy”
Guess what…the pre publication book she was referring was mine!
You’ll have to wait until publication to find out what she thought of it, as the book features a quote that she kindly provided.
So what do you think, is it a bit feminist and worthy, should female breadwinners roll their sleeves up and get on with it?
Or should the female breadwinner be explored, understood and celebrated?
And what does it mean to be a bit feminist anyway? Don’t we all want equal political, economic and social rights for men and women? I can put my hand on my heart and say I do!
I would love to hear your thoughts, however controversial.
