    What an interesting post. I have worked so hard to get to a place of professional *success* and a certain level of responsibility, but now that I’m here, I can’t remember why I needed to be here. It’s odd, really. I am slightly envious of other countries, such as your Netherlands example, but then I wonder if I’d be bored at all? It’s a internal discussion I have about staying home with kiddos or not (someday). But I think women have fought so hard for blanket equality that not enough time is taken to address individual’s happiness. Very thought provoking!

    What a thoughtful, interesting post! I loved the line “But perhaps this situation is setting us up for a world in which none of us is having any fun” – at my previous corporate America job, this is exactly what my female co-workers & I would talk about…. it seemed frustrating to be working so hard in hopes to be promoted, when none of us thought our bosses’ jobs looked like anything we’d want!
