Second wave feminism was great for women in the United States. Today, more women graduate college than ever before and more women are financially independent than ever before. The result of this is that because women don’t “need” men to provide for them, far more women are choosing not to get married and to exit bad marriages. On top of that, the qualities it takes to succeed in the workplace: tenacity, competitiveness, strong opinions, leadership – have been prototypically coded as masculine. It would not be too much of a stretch to say that as women have become more masculine, men have become more feminine – less likely to be ambitious, less likely to call and plan and pay, less likely to drive dating and relationships forward. What does this mean for smart, successful women who are looking to date their equals? Stick around and I’ll do my best to explain.
