> Matriarchy or Madame President?
> In the New York Times today, in the story, "What Do Women Want? Just
Ask," I found this juicy quote:
> "We are perhaps on the first step to a matriarchal society; women
will earn more money than men if current trends continue by 2028,"
said Michael J. Silverstein of the Boston Consulting Group. "The trend
has been escalating in the last 10 years as there has been a gradual,
slow erosion of the power balance in the family, a psychic rebalancing."
> Women, Mr. Silverstein added, are "controlling purchases and driving
a shift in our economy." The article goes on to state that there are
more women with higher education resulting in higher salaries.
> Another sociological shockwave occurred with the recent poll
determining that married couples are now in the minority. The world is
changing. The scales of power are tipping. And I don't think most men
have realized this quite yet.
> I was at the neighborhood dog park this morning where Hillary was
the discussion. The men agreed that the country was not ready to elect
a woman as president.
> Hmmm, if women are inching toward having a higher net worth, are
more educated, and no longer seem to need a man to prop them up in
marriage exactly when will we, collectively, be ready to elect a woman
> I think sooner than we, or they, think.
