I think that as with any facet of our humanity, the female gender has undergone a nature/nurture evolution, both from the external perspective and from our own inside looking out vantage point.

I remember very well being a young girl excited about getting my first bra and listening to friends of my mother's strident bra-burning tirades. It colored my view of 'the movement' then - I didn't like it much. But at the same time, I'd been told from the day I was born that I could do or be anything I wanted, with enough hard work and determination. By both parents - mother and father.

My own daughter has no comprehension of being relegated to a different class or a lesser opportunity because of her sex. She's 26 and believes to her core that her destiny is her own, gender be damned.

We've come a long way, baby.

Hmmm. So thoughtful and well written. You've brought up a lot of points to think about.
