Why can't we make equal money to men or more? Why should it always be the man's duty to provide for family?
Doesn't society realize not all women have husbands to support them and their children? Can a woman be the main supporter in the household(with a husband or even a boyfriend)? It's like we're forced to eventually fall in love with a sucessful man and have him support us financially. We don't get enough credit for wanting to support ourselves and our children cause we'll die alone but we'll still be happy.We can't earn enough it seems to exceed the amount a man does. Yeah we all can't work in construction or engineers or waste/nuclear plants to name a few cause if we wanted to become pregnant, we'd be putting ourselves at risk for potential hazards. I'm just so sick of this society where we're still being the weaker link and man dominates but there's nothing to do about it. I'm a single black woman 31 trying to better myself in college to support my 2 young kids. Yes, I admit it I'm one of those who will never marry and my kids will grow up and have troubles with the law because I have no choice but to raise them on my own and I get punished for that! My ex has mental issues and will never be able to excel a high school diploma and can't support our kids on a $9 an hour job. I knew him since middle school aNd fell for him cause I felt sorry for him and I had a low self esteem cause I was bullied cause my skin color was not dark enough and he was white. But I learned my lesson and now I'm trying to do better.
