The Female Privilege of Being Mothers or Breadwinners

Newsweek Magazine reports on the privileged luxury many women have to either work or be stay at home mothers. This is a luxury most men don't have and that many fathers would kill to have but the feminist movement tells us that only men are privileged. Yeah ok:

"A lot of women my age don't feel a big need to work because they know they can if they want to," says Kate Francisco, 32, of Langhorne, Pa., a mother of two...

[W]omen are using their earnings to buy back personal time." To keep them even part time, employers have to offer flexible schedules, telecommuting or shorter hours. Joanne Brundage, a former postal worker and founder of a support group, Mothers & More, in Elmhurst, Ill., calls it "sequencing"--switching in and out of the work force depending on your time of life...

A higher portion of women are choosing "women's work," such as nursing and teaching. It's no coincidence that these jobs offer many options for part-timers."

After reading this how can anyone believe that the fact that men make more money is due to some sexist conspiracy to keep women oppressed?
