Are women aware of their sexuality or we are still fighting for our rights? Do we go to work and do housework too whereas our husbands and mate sit and watch TV because it;s not a man zone?Do you believe that a woman must ask what she wants???What is it that today's woman want???

I think woman have greater independence without a man, other wise it seems like if there is a man around you are stuck with the chores, the lions share and working. Myself I find it just so much easier to only have to care for me now that the kids are grown. It is easier and my home work load is so much easier. I have had a hubby, he did very little in the chore department, and since I have had several male companions, and it would always be expected for me to clean, to laundry ect... plus work, while they got off easy taking out the garbage and relaxing. Nope, no more for this gal. I am happy just taking care of me now.

So interesting, I'm pondering what you are saying. I was married a long time ago and divorced after a few years of married life. No children. I was in the groove of doing the wifely thing, the housework, laundry, cooking. If I were to marry now - no way would I go back into that groove. I too am happy looking after myself and I'm not sure I could go back into the marriage thing.

i think women want it all, husband, family, career, own income, nice house, nice car, good future, equality, respect, be professionals, be somebody in life, etc. because we are women and we can have it all!

I think we we say words like fighting for our rights, instead of knowing what our rights are, it starts conflict. if we change the way we say and see things. then those things we want to change will. Do i think we are still fighting for our rights as women? I think we as women are just as lost as men are. i think we don't know what are rights are, and because we don't we are going to continue to "fight" for what we think is ours.

Hello, I think until now, there is still some issue aboult man's and woman's equal rights. Do they give enough rights for woman or do the man has more rights than woman It is quite subjective as different people has their own definition for different criteria. I think to me, i want a male that will volunteerly come and help the woman in their work and woman will also come and help out in the guys work. Lots of giving and taking. thAT is what i want

it is still not fair across the board and women are still fighting for their rights, and who knows we may always be fighting for our rights.

i believe that women nowadays are able to do what they want and get what they want no matter how hard or impossible it may seem. women in the present generation are truly a picture of a strong person which are able to portray herself well in society as well as in any midst of adversity. i can say that women want to express herself truly and be able to gain self-respect and self-worth and also gain these from external forces.

I live in the UK and am in my mid forties now and have been the fulltime career women, whilst trying to be mum and keep up with the household chores and I really would have rather had finances allowed to be a stay at home mum just doing the domestic duties. I eventually talked my husband of the time to get a cleaner in for me as it was all too much as he did just sit and relax after work whereas I had to carry on and cook, wash and iron. I remember blowing a fuse once when he had got home 2 hours before me then as I walked through the door had the cheek to ask what was for dinner. I believe women should ask for what they want and also expect to get it. They say it is equal but there is I feel a great imbalance still even though many men do successfully help in all areas. I just want peace and balance in all areas of my life and to be heard when I speak rather than to be ignored as if my opinion doesn't matter which men can make you feel like at times. Ellie :D
