The Joys of the Great Big Loving Sisterhood

From The Brussels Journal -
Sharon Dijksma, a leading parliamentarian of the Dutch Labour Party (PvdA) wants to penalise educated stay-at-home women. “A highly-educated woman who chooses to stay at home and not to work – that is destruction of capital,” she said in an interview last week. “If you receive the benefit of an expensive education at society’s expense, you should not be allowed to throw away that knowledge unpunished.”

How delightfully tolerant she is.
She's not the only one with this viewpoint - Mary Robinson has expressed a milder version before.

As a young educated woman who plans on staying at home to raise her children, I'm basking in the love of our feminist foremothers.
