A new world for women

Regarding Kathleen Parker’s Sept. 30 op-ed column, “At last, telling women’s stories”:

Yes, we have come a long way. My daughters were not told, as I was, that the only way a woman could go into television news was by becoming a secretary and hoping for the best (I didn’t try that route). They were not told that, by going to college, they could meet a “higher-status” husband, as I was told. The bad old days are mostly over. Hooray!
