Do you believe society teaches women.... That their worth is measured by their ability to get and keep a man?
If so, I missed the lesson. I don't feel I get any real grief over being a long term single career woman. If anything women get hassled more for being home-makers.
In some societies yes, women are always blame when their men find another woman, it is because she cant satisfy the man
Some society expects women to keep their man. And in these societies men usually are the ones who initiates courtship etc
Whether society teaches it or not, many women are going to feel this way, especially if their dream career is that of wife and mother. It is hard to be a wife and mother without the ability to get and keep a man she loves.
...no....i've never really thought about my worth being measured by 'getting and keeping a man'....glad i put more value in other aspects of who i am...i'd rather people look at who i am as a person....if they don't - that's too bad.
Alot of women I have come across seem to think they need a man - I think society has taught them that but I don't think it's true - a woman or a man should trust their own instincs and become their own person - my motto is - if you want something done and done right - then do it yourself
Unfortunatley society measures a woman's worth based upon her looks and sexual prowress today.
Thank the Secular Progressives for that.
Woman's lib has destroyed Woman and Mothers throughout this country, and continues to this day to decimate the daughters of America and alot of the world.
It is sad... what could have been great was perverted by the Secular Progressives. I feel bad for woman today.
As dated as your views are, I'm beginning to believe you ARE that guy in the avatar. :-)
Do you actually read anything I write before you reply, PP, Psyche?
Or are you so excited and bubbly to insult you gloss right over that part.
Society is society, I am myself.
Don't confuse me, with them.
Society today teaches sex is power for woman. And that is a Secular Progressive tenant. (if it feels good do it) It is amazing what happens when whole generations of young girls are raised on Soap Operas and Mtv.
I read it, I just think it's bunk. I am a secular women and my sex life has nothing to do with my personal power (which is primarily based on being a scientist).
Well, I think you have it backwards, actually. Fifty years ago, a woman's worth was largely measured by how well she could get and keep a man. Woman were mostly expected to marry and stay home and raise children. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, but one result of the feminist movement is that women no longer feel constrained to lead a certain kind of life. Young women today know they can do anything they want to do; that belief was not so common until at least the 1970s.
I'm not sure where you get the idea that women's lib and secular progressivism have resulted in women's worth being based upon looks and sexual prowess. That's the exact opposite of what progressive ideals would promote.
And to answer the OP directly, I think messages sent to women in today's western culture are many and varied. Unfortunately, some women still are raised to believe that their worth is measured by the man whose company they keep, but I think it is to a lesser degree than ever before.
The overall worth and value of each individual woman is completely under-rated and not truly realized.
I think society on the whole is confused and just gives everybody a backhanded compliment.
I think society teaches young girls their true worth as a grown woman can only be measured by how well they compare to the most beautiful super models - in beauty, sexiness, and being slender or skinny.
And yet, as a woman, I feel I have more option now about how to lead my life than in any other period in history. It isn't all bad.
If they are it is not a society I belong to. Women are emotion, softness, strength, workers,beauty, heart, mothers, not keepers of men.
somtimes--depends on the woman and depends on the man or men that she has been commited to, and how they make her feel of her worth or how she allows others to make her feel about it

Based on the linked article, it appears that there was no such thing as the Supreme Court Decision entitled Roe Vs Wade. What was it, over 40 years ago, and we still deal with these RED retrograde states trying to chip away at this right obtained by women, nationwide. First, no abortion, excluding...

Ladies, would you ever sell your virginity for money? And if so, for what price would it be worth it to lose your virginity to someone that you don't even know or love? Do you find it empowering to women to have this kind of control, even knowing that it could make you as much as 4...
