Ten Things Young Women Need to Know

Posted on August 29, 2011 by

  1. Being a woman does not make you a victim. You have choices to make and to live with. That’s what being liberated and independent is about.
  2. You should make goals in your personal life just as you do in your education and career.
  3. Divorce doesn’t erase a marriage- it often creates a new set of problems for you and your children.
  4. There’s no shame in aspiring to marry- married people tend to be happier, healthier, and better of financially
  5. Not everyone is doing it. Fewer of your peers than you think are engaging in casual sex-and those who are often regret it.
  6. Kids raised by their parents tend to have fewer emotional and behavioral problems than kids who spend long hours in daycare.
  7. Condoms are not a get-out-of-STD-free device- condoms do little or nothing to prevent the spread of several serious STDs.
  8. Discrimination is not why women make less money than men. Women make different choices and have different priorities which results in them earning less.
  9. You’re most fertile in your twenties. During your thirties, fertility declines and many women have trouble getting pregnant after age 35.
  10. Flowers, candy and opened doors are not weapons of oppression. Chivalrous gestures show that a man actually respects you and may be interested in a relationship.

This is a good book for any young woman indoctrinated in the public school system or liberal university to get her hands on. There’s nothing earth-shattering here to most of our regular readers, but most young women today could learn a lot from it.
