Anyone else offended by "moms were usually at home being moms"?? This is a sweet article about a smart and resourceful woman, Noyon Berg, who undoubtedly could have accomplished many more things, if she wished to, had she grown up a century later. Not sure I would wax on about the good ole days when women were stuck in their homes taking care of children all alone, their husbands at work "being husbands." (Would we tolerate a sentence that read, "when African Americans were usually at home, being servants"?)

I don't want my daughter reading things like this to make her think that she (or her children) are worse off for all the options she has today.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
