Forty Two: Women as They Age

“The faces of most American women over thirty are relief maps of petulant and bewildered unhappiness.”  – F. Scott. Fitzgerald

In my 39 years on this planet, I have retained my sense of pride in being a woman. I have experienced love, loss, travel, grounding, employment, unemployment, pregnancy and miscarriage, and at each juncture I have always appreciated my femininity. But then I read this quote by Mr. Fitzgerald for the first time tonight and I wonder how some men and women can become so disconnected from both their feminine and masculine natures.

Is this men versus women debate eternal, or will there be a time when men and women are at a true parity in society?
