CLOMID FOR SALE, So Marissa Mayer gets attacked for taking a 2-week maternity leave and building a nursery next to her office, yet a short while back Anne-Marie Slaughter was getting taken to task for leaving her executive level position in government because she couldn’t balance work and family.

Personally, CLOMID overnight, Buy generic CLOMID, I am relieved that Mayer is finding ways to make a high-level career and motherhood work. I would not have been able to stomach the gleeful gloating that would have erupted had she had her child and then stepped down, CLOMID pictures. Buying CLOMID online over the counter,  When Mayer’s selection at Yahoo. was announced, where to buy CLOMID, CLOMID maximum dosage, the big question was whether a new mom could handle that level of responsibility.  And it appears that she can, with an ample support system and a ton of resources.  Just like men do, CLOMID trusted pharmacy reviews.

Frankly, I am little dismayed about all the outrage over her nursery and 2 week maternity leave.  I don’t read about those things and feel like she’s doing or getting anything out of the ordinary for a high level executive.  But I also don’t internalize comments like “My baby is easy” as “and if yours isn’t, you’re a terrible mom” or equate a 2 week maternity leave with hating on maternity leave.  Most of the vitriol is coming from other women – why, CLOMID FOR SALE. CLOMID results, Katie Roiphe had a valid point when she pointed out that liberals (her word, not mine) are always pushing for more female executives and yet look at the treatment of Mayer and Sandberg.  Who wants to be a feminist executive when you get attacked for being successful?  Why are we not supporting these women for making it, CLOMID from canadian pharmacy, CLOMID treatment, especially in the male-dominated tech field.

I am not a high level executive, CLOMID use, Online buying CLOMID hcl, as I have time to write for this blog and spend an incredible amount of hours reading feminist-y stuff on the internet.  But I have worked directly under high level executives before.  In that organization, there were 4 male executives and three female executives.  Each of those 7 people easily spent twelve to fourteen hours in the office and worked every weekend.  All had a bunch of advanced degrees, herbal CLOMID. CLOMID price,  Traveled at the drop of a hat.  Subsisted on coffee and bars.  Scheduled meetings all day with no lunch break. That was what it took to do that job, order CLOMID from mexican pharmacy.

medium_4036278964 CLOMID FOR SALE, Executives are elites.  Very few people can perform at their level.  Fewer choose to do it because depending on the industry, your quality of life sucks even if you’re making a lot of money.  There is no 3 month maternity leave for many executives even if their company provides it and supports it.  But if you’re someone like Mayer, you can handle that with the resources you have available.  As a feminist community, I don’t think we should be judging Mayer’s lack of maternity leave.  We should be talking about the average woman’s shoddy maternity leave. Low dose CLOMID, I don’t think having a small percentage of women executives or members of congress is enough to change the culture of American corporate or political organizations.  It’s not fair to look at Mayer and her revoking her company’s telework policy (or her lack of maternity leave), and claim that female executives behave just like male executives.  It’s like putting a few drops of food coloring into a few gallons of water and expecting it to change color.  We need a critical mass, CLOMID pics, Effects of CLOMID, a tipping point to change culture.  Otherwise, the argument sounds similar to Rush Limbaugh lamenting about how he just doesn’t understand why Hispanics lean Democrat despite the Republicans having Marc Rubio, online buy CLOMID without a prescription. CLOMID duration, As the “token” women executive, Mayer and Sandberg are expected to represent and speak for and to all women.  Generally, CLOMID no prescription, Buy CLOMID without prescription, if someone is a “representative” to a certain population than there probably isn’t enough of them to show a sincere investment.  Too much of this criticism directed toward Mayer and Sandberg seems unwarranted.

Has this tired discussion about whether women having families and high level careers switched from being about gender to being about class, buy CLOMID online cod. CLOMID forum,  Successful women like Mayer and Sandberg are getting labeled as out of touch elites, privileged rich girls, CLOMID online cod, Online CLOMID without a prescription, lucky girls who are too full of themselves to see how lucky they really are.   Maybe they are.  However, we seem to be leaning towards this approach towards super successful women, purchase CLOMID online no prescription, CLOMID coupon, with the exception of Sonia Sotomayer as of late, where their merit is discredited because they have some privilege, CLOMID from canada.

We shouldn’t act like the only reason Mayer and Sandberg are successful just because they are rich or white or grew up middle class, CLOMID FOR SALE. CLOMID images,  First of all, we don’t treat men executives this way.  Second of all, where can i cheapest CLOMID online, Taking CLOMID, plenty of people grow up with that privilege and don’t become executives of major tech companies.  Yes, having those attribute is a privilege and yes, CLOMID wiki, Canada, mexico, india, most of the time that makes someone’s life easier and more successful.   And yes, we should identify privilege in the course of discussion.  But are we judging executive women too harshly for having it, CLOMID blogs.

Reading Maureen Dowd’s hypocritical caricature of Sandberg for being self-entitled while giving other women advice reminded me of Phyllis Schlafly’s successful national speaking career where she told women their place was in the home, not having a career.  Really Ms. Dowd. Could you not, perhaps, see just a little bit of yourself in what you wrote. CLOMID FOR SALE, Have you ever been in a conversation where someone mentions anything that isn’t related to a scarcity of food/water/shelter/democracy and someone responds “Oh, first world problems” in a sarcastic tone and the conversation shuts down because there’s really not a great response to that?  That’s what I feel is going on when we talk about successful women.  When people freaked out about poor women not being able to “lean in” to their careers, did anyone stop to consider that maybe Sandberg wasn’t speaking to that group of women. And that it’s ok if she was only targeting her advice to middle/upper class career women.

Feminism needs to belong to everyone, those who have made it and those who are still working on making it.  Depending on country, race, social status, wealth etc. feminism is going to look different for different groups of women.  I feel like we are losing that perspective, that inclusiveness.  Are women, especially college educated women who have some privilege, not identifying with feminism because it only seems relatable to women who are struggling or belong to women who lack privilege?  By misinterpreting collective action as meaning what works for one woman must work for all women, are we are losing relevancy in a lot of women’s lives.

I want feminism to stay relevant.  I also want more female executives.

There Are Bigger Issues At Stake Than Petraeus

Everyone seems to be following the Gen. David Petraeus affair in I-can’t-tear-myself-away fashion.  But are we getting caught up with what is appearing to be a run of the mill affair that got over-hyped and sensationalized?  And are we such a prude nation that in our eager attempt to punish adulterers we are A-OK about […]

Waiting for Superwoman: Is Work/Life Balance a Myth?

The Atlantic has done it again – ignited a controversy with an article about women and the workplace.  Anne-Marie Slaughter’s piece “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All” is giving Hanna Rosin’s “The End of Men” a run for its is-feminism-bad-or-good-for-women-in-the-workplace money. There has been a lot of conversation lately about women in the workplace, […]

VAWA and the Rights of Crimes Victims

When I was stalked, I experienced first-hand the limits of the justice system and the burden that gets placed on victims.  In the last few decades, there have been numerous improvements in the way survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence are treated and the way the justice system prosecutes violence against women.   This week […]

On Threatening to Rape Michele Bachmann With a Weapon

A US Federal judge recently ruled that Twitter had to reveal the identity of the twitter user who recently threatened to rape Michele Bachmann with a machete.  Hallelujah!
