Woman as Breadwinner

Are we ready to be Princess Charming?

By: Mayra David

According to a 2005 Bureau of Labor Statistics survey, roughly one-third of married women earn more than their husbands do. This is a big leap toward the day when women earn salaries equal to those of men and can truly celebrate the obliteration of the glass ceiling. But what about equality at home? What if you’re the breadwinner – whether primary or sole? I’m not sure we as women – or our society – are prepared for us to increasingly assume the provider role traditionally held by men. Or that a man who cannot support himself financially will be respected when every generation of women thus far has been socialized to look for men who can serve as protectors and providers. Despite the growing number of women in the breadwinner role, are we ready to fracture the fairy tale and assume the role of Princess Charming?
