Something you should Read.......

In my last post, "Is Marriage the Ultimate goal?", I talked about how I feel that marriage shouldn't be the ultimate goal of a women's life. While reading today, I came across this article by Urvashi Butalia. It talks on the same lines that how the old gender-based goals have become obsolete in the contemporary times in the lives of women. Women today are not only questioning the roles that cultures have defined for us but also making choices on their own terms. And the article above discusses the dilemma that women face when they do not conform to such stereotypes and and are asked questions like:" Don't you want to be a mother?  Aren't you lonely? Why aren't you married?"
