It has not been my experience. And that is all I can speak to. I was able to have an education and get a job — have a career which supported me and my children if need be without the aid of a partner. I am independently owned and operated. As are my daughters. My mother was trapped — financially and emotionally to the men she married. Divorce not an option. Self perseveration a selfishness.
That was my story. My past. It continues — there are many places to improve the lives of women — no doubt. But I do not live the same life of my mother.
Not even close. 🙏🏻
