Last Plane to Jakarta: Betty Friedan: "It was Betty Friedan who pointed out to American men and women that there was really no reason a woman couldn't be anything she wanted to be. It was rather radical, in 1963, to suggest that a woman could be perfectly happy with neither a husband nor a child to her name. " Actually, it's still a rather radical thought. Is it is really this simple? Gosh, I hope so, because I am keenly aware that despite all that I have and all I've achieved, I am still defined by "lack".

In my opinion, a perfectly happy woman defines herself and does not give a rat's a** about how society defines her. So, do you really care how society defines your experience of life? As long as they don't interfere with your route to happiness, of course.
