The single greatest challenge for women today is finding the right balance between personal and professional life. The third wave of feminism is here. Mastery of the third wave depends on searching for your personal happily ever after.
Betty Friedan compared the feminist revolution to evolution when she said:
“The feminist revolution had to be fought because women quite simply were
stopped at a state of evolution far short of their human capacity.”
Now that we have reached the absolute limit of our human capacity we need help! Women must have the courage to re-define success without apologizing for our choices. If we are to survive, we must evolve. Instead of feeling empowered we are feeling tired. Instead of feeling successful at home and work, we are feeling frustrated that there is never enough time to do all that needs to be accomplished personally and professionally. Illnesses that are stress-related are occurring nearly twice as often in women as men.
Instead of trying to “have it all” at the same time, we should be searching for our happily ever after. The Evolution of the Feminine Mystique is a compass for women. The ultimate destination will be different for every woman. However with the right tools, every woman can reach her happily ever after.
