Women Out-Earning Men for a Change

The NYTimes reports today that young women are outearning men in major cities around the country: New York, Dallas, Chicago, Boston, and Minneapolis. This is great news, but many feminists are skeptical of such reporting, reminding women that they may be outearning their partners now, but will lose their edge as they start to pop out the kids. Let's not kid ourselves: there is intense pressure among upper- and upper-middle class women to cut back or quit working to devote more time to raising children -- a pressure that simply does not exist for men.
