'Tis Better to Give Than to Succeed?
Two authors duked it out about women in the workplace on The Today Show this morning. Megan Basham, author of “Beside Every Successful Man,” claims that polls show women actually want to remove themselves from the working world and crave to spend more time at home. With the economy in a tailspin though, many households require two incomes to survive. She also said that women at home are happier and more supportive of their husbands, which ultimately increases their salaries.
On the other side of the fence is Leslie Bennetts, author of “The Feminine Mistake” (sound vaguely familiar?) who says no way, no how should a woman quit her job to support her husband. Since personal and economic futures are always cloudy, she says it’s better to remain financially independent in case of divorce, death or unexpected expenses.
