Wow, that is a deep question. I think the thing women's lib was supposed to do was give women choices and create equality. Now, with that said, if there are neglected children, and yes there certainly are. They are neglected by their mothers as well as the fathers. I think many women have been hoodwinked into thinking they really could bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan and, never let him forget he's the man. If you were here in the 70's you really got fooled by that one. I truly agree with Oprah when she says that You can have it all just not all at the same time. I admire her for making the choice to not become a mother. She understands the time and focus it takes in being a parent and she made the choice to not compromise. I really think more women should make that choice and, be okay with it and, not get preasured by people to procreate. Now, if things are going to be "equal" then fathers have the same responsibility to care for the children. We all know that traditionally the women have been the primary care givers when it comes to children. I think that may need to change. If we are changing the bread winner then other things have got to change. One person simply can't do it all. Unfortunely, we do have instances where there are no options and the woman or less often, the man is the only one available to care for the children. I think that is where the extended family and the comunity have to come in and lend a hand. I think women's lib did okay, we just have to work out the kinks. Nothing is perfect. We've come a long way baby but, we're not quite there yet.

lol..that's a serious one alright. I'm all for women's lib...but not the men bashing kind. I believe both genders are equal as human beings. Each has their set of weaknesses and limitations. I don't want to do everything that a man does....but I do expect to be respected as a human being and not taken for granted just because I am a woman.

That's very fair and very right.I know that this is a serious question.I believe in both the sexes having equal responsibilities and deserve equal respect.Is it right shrugging your part of responsibility to the family in the guise of liberation?I would like to know your response on behalf of the many poor neglected children I have come across.

neglected by the mothers in the name of women's lib? that's a shame. I would say don't have kids if you are not the maternal kind. If you could elaborate a little more, I might be able to give a detailed post.

hi bala, i feel to evryone and the most to the woman. Evryhting has its pros and cons.To my knowledge as woman being lib has given a boost to their confidence and the realisation that they can do things that man can do and rather in a better manner.confidence is good but to a few population of woman its become over confidence which leads to breaking of the relations so this is a bad part attached to it. One more thing adding to the present scenario is when the woman is working and can handle things like the family as well as deamds of her kids than this gives a boost to man and generally he starts thinking that theres no need for me to earn as my wife is self sufficient and can manage in her salary so he uses his salary in boozing --this is lower middle class sceneario. The best part is the man earns as well as the woman earns so they think that we are a helping hand to each other and can beat the future demands and can stay happy.

I think women can answer this question in an effective manner. In my opinion, it helped all types of women. Now they are more liberated and can fight for their causes and they are coming forward in every field of life.

Hi & Hello, my friend Balasri. Actually women's lib helped the serious person the most and place lazy ladies in different category. The serious person normally assist women's lib to grow and develop, aggressively and in contemporary manner. For lazy ladies, they need more information about the movement and objectives on women's lib, where the liberation of women from inequalities and subservient status in relation to men, and from attitudes causing these, now generally replaced by the term FEMINISM. Happy Postings and Earnings, Balasri. HAPPY DAPPY.
