(This'll have to be a short one tonight, since I wasn't going to post anything until an hour ago.)
I was just reading an article about the discovery that women's stress levels decrease when they come home to a good marriage while men's levels decrease no matter what. There are several questions that came to my mind when I read this, not the least of which is: what is a good marriage (or partnership, since some of us can't/won't get married)? Why do you think there's a difference?
(If you don't feel like talking about the article, you can consider this an open thread as well.)
Feminisms is a series of weekly feminist diaries. My fellow feminists and I decided to start our own for several purposes: we wanted a place to chat with each other, we felt it was important to both share our own stories and learn from others’, and we hoped to introduce to the community a better understanding of what feminism is about.
Needless to say, we expect disagreements to arise. We have all had different experiences in life, so while we share the same labels, we don’t necessarily share the same definitions. Hopefully, we can all be patient and civil with each other, and remember that, ultimately, we’re all on the same side.
