From the first article- there are a couple paragraphs about how women feel and are perceived as selfish for choosing career over family, while men feel and are perceived as selfish for choosing family over career. Men = public, macro, large scale, societal; women = private, personal, individual. What if those roles/characteristics were flipped and we had a public sphere that was feminine, or woman-run? I mean, at least lets balance it out and make it so its not this rigid binary at the end of the day. How long will it take to override this long cultivated heuristic?
