while i would say that friedan and steinem did nothing but bind women to an ideology that is destructive to the adherent, schrieber did nothing but industrialise the household and allow the woman to do more things while there...in fact i would further suggest that women do more housework now that there are appliances for every concievable task than before the invention and subsequent sale of new domestic tools.

Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem liberated absolutely nobody. They conspired to enslave men. And that's all they did.

When I was in the Navy the last ship I was assigned to visited the Philippines many times. In my experiience the women did most of the work--there were a lot of lay about men. I always said that Women's Liberation for the average Filipina was an electric washing machine.

ZorroPrimo,

I would say men were already slaves. First to jobs/bosses, then to family, with God somewhere in there for most. What those two did was convince women that slavery was better than being autocrats of small kingdoms. Men have always ruled an unruly world (which means we do our best and brag about what is often luck). Women used to rule a home. Smaller but surer, with fewer variables they actually ruled. Now, it's all anybodies game in an unruly world.

Homes are now much bigger than they were 100 years ago. The cleanliness standard has increased. Having your children play outside with other children is no longer acceptable, they have to be driven to activities and the kids must perform well in school. Yes, there are now appliances that assist with many household chores but the number of chores and the time it takes to do them has increased.

Maybe we should call this the "empty closet syndrome." No matter how much closet space you have in your house, eventually, you always fill them up. The same is true for time and work.

Parkinson's Law: All work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.

Women's liberation, in practice, has simply meant that American women have behaved even more shrewishly. Charles Kettering merely gave them the time to do that; Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem actively encouraged them to.

what gives women time is the ability to steal money legally and then pay others to do things in the home and elsewhere.

domestic appliances merely allow a woman to find more things to do.

like power tools do for men (like me, as i renovate the home my wife and i bought recently).

My favorite joke to tell around Friedan and Steinem types:

Why are wedding dresses white?
So the dishwasher matches all the other appliances.
