Women Are Not Happy

April 21, 2012


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.


  1. Women not happy, men remain flat? Would men be happy with flat women? Let’s ask Kitty Pilgrim "Is Kitty your real name? Isn’t it enough to have a last name like Pilgrim?" "Can I make you happy?" "Heeerrre Kitty!"

  2. PLEASE.. those type of women are fat and miserable and couldnt get a man unless they paid him.. they eat mallomars while reading books about Gloria Steinem’s life..

  3. I hate the word feminism.. and I hate feminists. I respect women who want to break the glass ceiling and work as hard and on the same caliber as men. But they dont have to act like I AM WOMAN HEAR ME ROAR.

    I’m a dude.. I respect women who work hard.. but SHIT, if you’re gonna do it, do it with sex appeal.. There is nothing worse than me, a man, wearing a suit and a tie only to find out my female counterpart is wearing something comparable to it..

    Some say it’s the latest in fashion.. I say its a woman trying to get one up on us.. WHAT A TURN OFF. My point is whether you’re a male or female, i’ll respect you either way.. so Ladies, don those high heels.. have a couple

    drinks at happy hour.. and BE HAPPY at happy hour.

  4. Happiness comes from within. Most of the women I know that are not happy are also not happy with themselves, and therefore project their misery on other people, making them miserable and the cycle goes on and on. It doesn’t take 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. It’s what’s inside and how you view what you DO have, versus what you DON’T have. Sometimes just changing your perspective is all that is needed. I don’t think it has anything to do with feminism.

  5. Shocker! Busting your ass all day long at work is making you unhappy. Well you asked for it and now you got it. Today I think my daughter and I will stroll through the park on our way to get some ice cream. Then maybe an early movie. Ohh the stresses of being the stay home parent.

  6. Is any married man surprised by this study? Can anyone tell me where it say that life is surpose to be easy. In america no one is making anyone do anything that they don’t want too. Who made you marry the guy you married, have the kids you have, work at the job you have. The ansewer is no one. I don’t go around complaining about my life I married the woman I want, I have the # of kids I want and I don’t hate me job. No my life isn’t perfect but who ever said it would be. I have to clean my house, help my kids with their homework, listen to my wife tell me about how she hates her job and the people she works with just like every other married guy. All of this comming for a woman who makes good money at her job, takes two or more vacations a year, and she has a great husband, father and man. What I ‘m saying is that she is a woman and happiness ecapes her because of her and not anyone else.

  7. Wow! So much judgement is being voiced! I feel for those who point the finger at others cuz often they are the same people who are trying to avoid at looking at their own faults. Here’s a thought… Just maybe you can put all your negative energy and try something new…. Compassion? Supportive? I think it’s admirable that women want it all. I believe you should never settle for less. But maybe women just want to be recognized for all their hardwork, or a pat on the back from time to time. Let’s be real… We all want that from time to time.
