The mother

The real religion of the world comes from women much more than from men - from mothers most of all, who carry the key of our souls in their bosoms. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes
In our society today, women are assuming the positions of men and mothers are doing great in combining their roles as keepers of the home and senior executives in the work environment. I was told growing up in Africa, that mothers (generically women) only took care of the household and could not do what the men did. Thank goodness there was the Beijing Conference which aimed at achieving greater equality and opportunity for women.--yeeehaaa!!
Sometimes i wonder why we get this cold shoulder from our men who feel career mothers are a threat. Hmmm!! Are you one of such by the way?
The question we need to ask is......
Should mothers be full time housewives or do both (i.e. combine their career with the home obligations)
