The News Story – Stay-at-home mums on the rise as economy settles

The recent stabilization of our economy has resulted in an increase in stay-at-home mums, a recent article from The Washington Times reports. “According to a recent Pew Research Center report,” the article states, “a greater share of mothers is not working outside the home than at any time in the past 20 years.” Additionally, what is particularly interesting is that “[t]he largest share [of stay-at-home mothers] consists of ‘traditional’ married stay-at-home mothers with working husbands…They made up roughly two-thirds of the nation’s 10.4 million stay-at-home mothers in 2012.” This means that we can safely say that most mothers choose to stay at home not due to economic necessity, but because they genuinely desire to care for their children and home over pursuing paid employment.

Book Review: The Big Lie

January 24th, 2014 Comments off
Click to visit the original postFound this originally here. It amazingly speaks to what we’re dealing with at our “Healing the 21st Century Family” conference/retreat: the heart-broken career woman who was told she should “have it all” by putting off child-bearing. Now when she’s finally ready to be a mother, it’s too late. Is this you as well? Come to our conference. Find help, consolation from others like you, and healing!

A review copy of Tanya Selvaratnam’s new book, The Big Lie: Motherhood, Feminism, and the Reality of the Biological Clock arrived in the mail a few weeks ago, and I have to admit, I was curious from the get go. There’s no big secret that motherhood and feminism have an interesting relationship (to say the least). Read more…

The pursuit of feminine excellence

December 13th, 2013 Comments off

by Angela Miceli

In a recent First Things article Elizabeth Corey makes a bold critique of contemporary feminism. She argues that we contemporary women, as inheritors of feminism, have been told that we can “have it all,” that we ought to pursue excellence in the same manner as men—that is, in our education and in our careers. But, we have discovered, these pursuits come at a high cost. Read more…

Why women still need husbands

November 25th, 2013 Comments off

Over the past several decades, America has witnessed a profound change in the way women view men and marriage. It began with the baby boomer adage “never depend on a man.”

This message resulted in a generation of women who turned their attention away from the home and onto the workforce. They did what their mothers told them to do: they became financially independent so they’d never have to rely on a husband. Read more…

How feminism undermined itself, gave way to the hook-up culture

November 18th, 2013 Comments off

By Susan Dench

It happened again. A guy told me he just didn’t know what women expected from him anymore. He was almost paralyzed by fear, wondering if he should do something that he thought would be gentlemanly but which he feared might actually offend the fairer sex. Oh, we women have so much to answer for. Read more…

I open doors for women because I admire them

November 7th, 2013 Comments off

An article has appeared in the NZ media this morningabout some absolutely absurd claims that some NZ academics are now making about men who show respect for women by opening doors, etc, for them. It also makes laughable claims about the women who accept such behavior as normal, even going so far as to suggest that they have a psychological disorder.

Here’s what the article has to say:

“Benevolent sexism has been identified as the flip side of the “hostile” sexism that would banish women to the kitchen. Read more…

Feminism through the life cycle

July 9th, 2013 Comments off
Women bought into a mystique that left them even more alone and conflicted in their pursuit of fulfilment.

In the Introduction to the tenth anniversary edition of The Feminine Mystique, Betty Friedan wrote, “It’s frightening when you’re starting on a new road that no one has been on before. You don’t know how far it’s going to take you until you look back and realize how far, how very far you’ve gone.” Read more…

The feminist, pro-father, and pro-child case against no-fault divorce

June 4th, 2013 Comments off

by Ashley E. McGuire

No fault divorce was greeted as liberation, but the result has been misery for all involved.

How appropriate that Justice Alito brought up cell phones in the recent Supreme Court hearings on the marriage cases. Because these days it seems like it is easier to get out of a marriage than it is to get out of a cell phone contract. Read more…

Neither In the Jungle Nor Out of It

April 15th, 2013 Comments off

by , Ruth Institute Circle of Experts Member

This article was first published at the public discourse on 

Lust perverts language itself, calling sex “safe” or “protected,” and cohabitation “honest,” and relationships “mutual,” which are nothing but forays into a jungle, where the strongest and most cunning survive.

Several weeks ago, Saint Valentine’s Day at my school came and went. There was no dance. There was no concert. There was no ice cream social. There was no party for trading little gifts. There was no showing of She Wore a Yellow Ribbon or Marty or Goodbye, Mr. Chips or Casablanca. There were no foolish and innocent flirtations on the way to class. Read more…
