Come On, We're Sisters!
by Judith Cassis
Why do we women divide and take sides over our issues? Breast vs bottle, home birth vs Epidural, and now the career mom vs the work at home variety - why do we think less of the woman who chooses another road, and worse yet, why does she think less of herself? We may not agree, but must we condemn one another for our choices?
There seems to be a lot of mud slinging going on these days between stay-at-home-moms and working moms. This saddens me! We're sisters. Hasn't the world doled out enough feminine oppression? Must we turn on each other? Because if we do, we're really turning on ourselves. All that are as a gender was wrought by woman-to-woman support. We held each other up, stuck it out and stuck together, and the cost would be far too great for us to turn away from each other now.
For one reason or another, the choice to stay at home or work from home may not be available to everyone. Sometimes there are circumstances beyond our control. And sometimes it's just not what they want. Who am I to judge?
Let's not ask each other to feel guilty about our choices. Instead, let's invite each other to examine our lives and recognize there are options. We're not victims and we're not stuck. IT'S NEVER TOO LATE to shift gears.
