The Iowa Center for Fiscal Equity: Women's Equality Means Accepting Stay at Home Dads is a comment on a book review published in yesterday's Washington Post of Leslie Bennetts' Feminine Mistake, which urges women not to become full time Mom's if they wish a career. My response was, what about the men? We are usually in the same boat if we stay at home for a few years, present company included. What is needed is a living wage for all workers, depending on family size, as well as an acceptance of men staying at home without being thought of as some sort of gigolo in apron strings. Until men are entirely free to stay at home and parent, women will not be entirely free to stay at work or return to work, or even work at the same wage as men. Until you ladies are willing to not only support your husband, but to also pay your secretary enough so that she can support her husband, you will never be equal in the workplace.
