It’s insulting to women to say they need to become more like men to succeed.
The truth is, most women spend the majority of their lives trying not to get pregnant. According to the Guttmacher Institute, by the time a woman with two children is in her mid-40s she will have spent only five years trying to become pregnant, being pregnant, and not being at risk for getting pregnant following a birth.

Almost all American women (99 percent), ages 15-44, who have had sexual intercourse use some form of birth control.

This was a high-stakes game, in an era when birth control was not legally available. But this new social life also created sexual norms that continue to inform what women and men expect of each other.
During your best years you don’t need a husband. You do need a man of course every step of the way, and they are often cheaper emotionally and a lot more fun by the bunch.
