According to new surveys, women’s overall level of happiness has dropped, both relative to where they were forty years ago, and relative to men. You find this drop in happiness in women regardless of whether they have kids, how many kids they have, how much money they make, how healthy they are, what job they hold, whether they are married, single or divorced, how old they are, or what race they are.
So with all the progress women have made–they are now the majority of the work force for the first time ever, and in the majority as well with regard to attending higher education, and myriad other areas of life–why are they still less happy than men–and getting more unhappy with time? Feminism! Turns out it wasn’t all it’s cracked up to be when it comes to “having it all”. And if there is anything we know about women, it’s that everything is exactly what they want. And they can have it–just maybe not all at the same time.
