Katha Pollitt takes on the NYT on inequality and marriage
Do we really need to be told that a woman with a college degree and a good marriage is better off than a college dropout raising three kids alone? Feminist writer Katha Pollitt asks this question in her critique of a New York Times article. This article compares the lives of two women and suggests that their success or failure is determined by their personal choices, not the impact of globalisation, or the absence of social support for women.
