Pizzey: "Frauen erschöpft vom Kampf für Gleichberechtigung"

Die Zahl der prominenten Frauen, die sich der Analyse anschließen, für die Eva Herman hierzulande aus den Medien gemobbt wurde, wächst international weiter an. Momentan stößt Erin Pizzey dazu:

Women have won the war for equality but it has left many of them imprisoned and exhausted, a pioneering feminist has claimed.

Campaigner Erin Pizzey, who founded the world's first refuge for battered women in 1971, claims the idea of women happily combining a career and a family has proved to be a myth. The 70-year-old said women's 'freedom of choice' to have both has left them with less spare time than they had before. But she added that many now did not understand what they had lost.

Speaking as part of a BBC programme about the role of women in the workplace, she said many are mothers who are having to juggle jobs at the same time. She said: 'There's been a subterranean war between men and women which has been won by women and they don't actually understand what they've lost.'

The campaigner added: 'I don't think anybody foresaw that what a freedom of choice would do is imprison many. Many women, they don't have a choice now, they have to work, they have to work hard, and I just see an exhausted generation of women trying to do it all.'

Hier geht es weiter.

Kaum vorstellbar übrigens, wie "erschöpft" die Frauen vom Kampf um Gleichberechtigung erst wären, wenn es von uns Männern irgendeinen Widerstand gegeben hätte ...
