23. It takes a looong time...
... for girls/women, really to decide they might NOT want to marry and reproduce. There has to be a commitment to education in the society-at-large and then a commitment to equitable employment.

While "femicide" is epidemic in India (and I bet China, too), we're hardly in a position (here) to sit in judgment when every facet of mass media is focused on making women "beautiful" and therefore desirable in what I call the Great American Meat Market.

I'll believe American women truly "get it" once we're done with pageant crap.
