This week Time magazine is asking “What Women Want Now.” I must have been busy polishing my nails when the Time editors called for my opinion, so I’ll share my desires here:
I want a woman president.
I want women’s careers to be valued equally to those of men’s careers.
I want childcare and the domestic sphere to be an equally paternal and maternal responsibility.
I want women’s smarts to be seen before their bodies.
I want women to feel as entitled to success as men do.
I want equal pay for all.
I want at least as many women as men at the top.
I want girls to experience limitless ambition.
I want to end the fantasy that sexism is dead.
I want women to want power.
What if every woman expressed her desires? Tell me, what are yours?
