Women: How feminine are you? [View all]

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Bolo Boffin (a host of the General Discussion forum).

Has the price of the womens' movement been at the expense of femininity?

I see no reason why June Cleaver couldn't have been the CEO of Mobil Exxon instead of Ward Cleavers' stay-at-home wife. Is todays' woman obligated to hawk, scratch, spit and cuss like man to be a success? Aren't women more than guys without dicks? IMO, most women today are not feminine.
