How to be a successful woman? Some people think one with better access to education and greater financial independence would be a successful woman. Women, in the modern time, have far more options. They can remain single. If they do get married, they do so typically at the age of 27, and they have an average of 1.5 children.
Fifty years ago, most women got married at the age of 20, for an American and have three or four children. Most women stayed at home and raised their children, relying on their husbands to support the whole family. Higher education was a man's domain, with three times as many men as women studying at universities.
Properly, women are now told that they can do anything they desire. During the past they are limited to such professions as secretaries, nurses or teachers, women in Western countries earn 57 per cent of all university degrees and go on to become solicitors, astronauts and businessmen.
The thought of an excellent female has been altering with the times. The women's suffrage movement began in the 19th century, but most Western women were granted the legal right to vote only in the 20th century. Many women started entering the workforce in the 1940s and 50s, and in the 60s and 70s, they fought for equal rights. Now, at the beginning of the 21st century, it's quite common to see women working in top jobs which were formerly just for men. There's also women who continue to be perfectly content to be stay-at-home mothers and give up a career.
Nowadays, it is a fair society, women have the optional right to do anything what they want.
