WHO IS SUPERIOR....A MAN OR A WOMAN.......THE ETERNAL QUESTION IN THE ETERNAL MAN-WOMAN RELATIONSHIP OF HUMAN RACE......
Posted by Vishva News Reporter on August 25, 2008

 

"My view on the human place in the universe is that we are not separate from the universe that surrounds us. We are interwoven physically, mentally, and emotionally with the fabric of existence. We are as a result the cause of our existence, which is why I call this sketch "The Eternal Man Woman and Child". The self perpetuating nature of all things is both reflected in us and a reflection of us. We are the eternal."

WOMAN AND HER LIFE ROLE IN CURRENT TIMES......

Stephanie Coontz  who teaches history and family studies at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, USA has the following understanding of the current role of woman in humanity on earth after a 45-year human evolution with coming of the feminism concept in 1963 as published by Betty Friedan in her book "The Feminine Mystique": 

 Feminism induced married women in western civilization and capitalism to abandon home for the workplace, destabilizing families and placing children at risk  into the expanding service, clerical and information sectors of economy.....

-  Many of these women workers became early supporters of the anti-slavery movement and women's rights, while middle-class women were energized by (and sometimes envious of) working women's vigorous participation in the public sphere.....


   
   -  Women who work are much more likely to adopt feminist-inspired agendas and reject traditional ideas about marriage. And when women gain economic and political clout, traditional family life is, indeed, destabilized.......

-   
But far from being a threat to family life, the further progress of women's rights may be our best hope for well-functioning families.......

MAN AND WOMAN ROLE AS PER CREATOR'S DESIGN, OPERATION AND MAITENANCE OF HUMAN RACE CREATION.........

The study of 18 puraaAN and mHaaBHaart and raamaayAN itihaas texts in sNskRUt language will tell this humanity the following major basics about the design and functional intent of man-woman in the master plan of creation of human race we are and in the creation we live in:

1.   Human beings is one of the infinite type creations that have been created in the universe we live in which includes from what we currently call inanimate to animate and includes everything humans can see and not see, feel and not feel and  experience and not experience through the 10 indriyo  which are organs of senses that we possess to have life and be alive to function in auto and non-auto modes at every breath we take and every action we do....

2.   Human being is created as man-woman basic unit for self pro-creation and self-propagation of humanity with joint provisions of ail the sustenance that is required for individual and collective needs from birth to death in 4 aaSHRm (functional ordained life stages from birth to death) of a life-travel.....a life travel's limited duration depends on the eternal cycles of 4 vEDik time-spans called chtuAR-yug of a total of 4.32 million years....

     In each of the 4 yug of each chtuAR-yug the operating  mode of relationship between man and woman differs quite a bit but the basic functions of the relationship as noted above persists....

3.  We presently live in the yug called kli-yug in the vEDik 4-yug time reckoning.....kli-yug has a time span of 432,000 years and currently mankind recons itself to exist in the 5110th year of kli-yug.....

.

4.  In the other three yug of the 4-yug cycles which precedes kli-yug a man as a husband will lead his family and is the provider of all the knowledge and wealth the husband-wife units needs and the a woman as man's wife manages the wealth and is in charge of running the family's daily life....and wealth is one of the prime tool for living a lifestyle as ordained by vARAN-DHARm.....

     This relationship is like the current day corporate administration where the company president and the combination of chief corporate financial officer and chief corporate operations officer....both sets cannot live successfully creating prosperity without each other.....

    But in kli-yug , as creation-design-ordained, woman-wife will start reversing the role with man-husband as kli-yug progresses in its term...and wealth becomes the only prime tool for living the lifestyle one wishes disregarding the vARAN-DHARm.....

And one can observe this man-woman role reversal through different life phenomenon with current lifestyle concepts-operating systems  of "religion", "equality", "feminism", "prejudice and discrimination"....all of which deviates from the fundamental DHARm which is the best design related operating system of life and creation for harmonious and happy co-existence of not only for man-woman relationship but entire diversity of the human race relationship and of human relationship with rest of the creations....

Most of the vEDik knowledge touched upon above has been detailed in other pages of this free knowledge-sharing PVAF web site.... and to understand in depth the above please visit the other pages.....and/or if you have questions and/or have the inspiration to  learn the TRUE AND COMPLETE KNOWLEDGE OF LIFE AND CREATION as contained in the sNskRUt texts of vED..... then write an email to PVAF by clicking here...and/or you can share your thoughts on today's topic by clicking on the POST A COMMENT button in the header of this news item....


 

Feminism didn't fail the family.......
Women were already working when Betty Friedan arrived IN 1963  WITH "The Feminine Mystique". .
Now, WOMEN'S incomes build domestic stability......


Canadian Globe and Mail:  August 25, 2008: Stephanie Coontz  who teaches history and family studies at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washigton, USA.

This year marks the 45th anniversary of the publication of Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique. Today, many social conservatives still blame Ms. Friedan and feminism for inducing women to abandon home for the workplace, destabilizing families and placing children at risk.

But feminism was always more of a response to women entering the labour force than its cause. In Western Europe and North America, early capitalism drew huge numbers of young, single women into industries such as textiles. Mill owners often built dorms to house young female workers. Many of these workers became early supporters of the anti-slavery movement and women's rights, while middle-class women were energized by (and sometimes envious of) working women's vigorous participation in the public sphere.

By the time Ms. Friedan's book was published in 1963, capitalism was drawing married women into the expanding service, clerical and information sectors. Her ideas spoke to a generation of women who were starting to view paid work as something more than a temporary break between adolescence and marriage, and were frustrated by society's insistence that the only source of meaning in their lives should be their role as housewives.

Wherever women enter the labour force in large numbers, certain processes unfold. Women begin to marry later and have fewer children, especially as they make inroads into higher education or more remunerative careers. They are also more likely to challenge laws and customs that relegate them to second-class status in the public sphere or mandate their subordination within the family. Governments and employers often then find it in their interest to begin removing barriers to women's full participation.

The dramatic decrease in laws and customs perpetuating female subordination over the past 40 years has been closely connected to women's expanded participation in paid employment. Societies where women remain substantially underrepresented in the labour market, such as in the Middle East, remain especially resistant to women's rights.

Political scientist Michael Ross argues that the extreme gender inequality found in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates is not caused by the intractability of Islamic tradition. Rather, it is the result of how oil wealth shifted economic development away from manufacturing jobs, which have historically pulled women into the labour force, to promoting jobs in construction, which tend to be dominated by men. Oil-rich Muslim Middle Eastern states score much lower on indices of gender equity than oil-poor states such as Morocco, Tunisia, Lebanon and Syria.






Social conservatives are wrong to blame women's entry into work on feminism. But women who work are much more likely to adopt feminist-inspired agendas and reject traditional ideas about marriage. And when women gain economic and political clout, traditional family life is, indeed, destabilized.

In Western Europe and North America, divorce rates soared as married women poured into the workplace in the 1970s and 1980s, with women initiating most divorces. Although divorce rates levelled off in the 1990s, cohabitation and unwed childbearing have continued to rise.

Nevertheless, the best hope for improving family life today is not to roll back women's rights, but to further women's economic and political integration. Increases in women's power and resources are most threatening to family stability in societies marked by gender inequality, where successful women often rebel against marriage. In countries such as Japan, Italy and Singapore, where the terms of marriage remain favourable to men, and women have a hard time combining work and family, working women postpone marriage and motherhood much longer than they do in North America, leading to declines in birth rates that threaten these societies' future.

As women gain collective rights, and especially as men accept women's changed roles, many of the disruptive effects of family change are ameliorated. In the United States, divorce rates for well-educated women are now much lower than for less-educated women, and women with good jobs or postsecondary degrees are more likely than more traditional women to be married at age 35. In the past, when a stay-at-home wife went to work, the chance that her marriage would dissolve increased. Today, going to work decreases the chance of divorce. In families where the wife has been employed longer, men tend to do more and better child-care, with measurable payoffs in child outcomes.

Of course, marriage will never again be as stable or predictable as when women lacked alternatives. But even where family change continues apace, it has far less negative consequences when women have economic rights. In the Nordic countries, out-of-wedlock births are much more frequent than in the United States, but children of single mothers are much less likely to experience poverty, and spend more time on average with both biological parents, because cohabitation there is more stable than in many American marriages.

In poorer countries, women's access to paid labour is a better predictor of children's well-being than the stability of marriage. In parts of Africa and Latin America, children are better nourished and have more access to education in female-headed households where the woman has a job than in two-parent households where the man earns the income. Children from female-headed households in Kenya, Malawi and Jamaica, for example, do as well or better than children from male-headed households in their long-term nutritional and health status, despite lower income.

Far from being a threat to family life, the further progress of women's rights may be our best hope for well-functioning families.
