Hi Gérard, everyone !
Thanks a lot ! I don't know if it was the case for people born before 1880, but I remember reading an article  about women living longer than men. They said it was also because women shed tears and express their feelings more easily than men. It is no good to say to a little boy "men don't cry, you must hold back your tears ! "

Muriel,

In my family tree, I can see many women who died early, possibly due to difficult deliveries.

It's true Gérard ! In my family women also died early because they had  difficult deliveries. My mother's babies were very big and 2 of them were still born. Fortunately my mother is still alive but she was Lucky. I could have had 6 brothers !

Money tends to seduce genders in different ways. According to a new study, women, on average, were about twice as likely to associate cash with love and emotion, whereas men were about twice as likely to see it as a sign of power and freedom.

MurielB a écrit:Yes Gérard money is useful. Anyway you can't buy love with money you can't love somebody because he's got money. Some do but it's not love It is interest.
Some ladies seem to be selectively attracted by money: in the Parisian society (and in the country as well I'm sure), there're selective schools, meetings, parties ("rallies", "Bal des Debs"), etc for youngsters: Love is not found by chance (or say throughout the whole population).
The lines above show a current tendency of parents.
In high schools there're girls who go only to meet good students; some other girls cannot enter the school but organize things to meet promising students after class-time, in cafés around the school or University.
When I was a teenager, living in a small town in Provence, the parents organized the parties of their daughters... the list of boys was carefully checked, believe me.
I took my studies in Lyon: I can assure you that wives of wealthy industrials managed to get their daughters invited at our parties. The "BAPSO-BAl de la Promotion SOrtante de l'INSA de Lyon" was very very famous.

It's not something artificial like what was organized by families decades ago but it's selective meetings leading to Love (capital L).

I think that my words will ring a bell... Wink


If you want a balance, I can also say that a few ambitious students were trying to meet an heiress as well.

Not for money but at least for a name and prestige, shall I point out Valéry Giscard D'Estaing, Jacques Chirac... ?

Gérard it was true in the past. Parents arranged their children's marriages, parents wanted a good party for their girls. I is not true nowadays. Girls want freedom. Sometimes they get married, sometimes they don't. They want to choose for themselves. As they have a job they don't need anybody to support them.

I don't think so Muriel.

There still are private schools in Paris which have a big percentage of wealthy parents' children.
Similarly, in the neighboring of engineer's schools, we can find girls lurking around.
In Lyon, my school is still as famous to find husbands for industrial's daughters.

Yes it is true love.

I don't mean weddings are decided by parents or girls are sold.
I mean that the circle of people to meet is the result of a good selection and meeting average persons is still very difficult.
Just -oriented choice.

However I agree that lots of talented girls don't need.
I was working with Valérie Pecresse's husband, Jérôme, a Polytechnician: I forgot to interview him about their meeting Wink

Message  Remy le Lun 31 Aoû - 7:07

Doctors, engineers, lawers...fall prays for women less graduated or for women who want to be housewives. But when women have made long studies they sometimes just desire a man like them. However, women often love men with a better situation because they need to admire him. And men like, as head of the family, to earn more. It's better for their virility.

On an other hand, brilliant women sometimes loose their womanhood because they think that, to succeed as a man, they must be like men. It's a pity. Fortunately, it's changing.

I understand your fears Rémy !  Anyway, i have read somewhere that  more expressive types of leaders are emerging. They can share their feelings and emotions more openly and honestly. Is n't it a feminine trait ?

The theme of this year's executive meeting, which opens on Monday, is "transforming society through women's empowerment," Kim Jung-sook, president of ICW, said Taipei.
"This is a very meaningful event," she said.

Yes, for a better world more participation for women in the political, economic, social and other spheres is very important ! A mix of masculine and feminine every where leads to harmony doesn't it ?

let’s talk about women  - Page 2 Empty confusion between grammatical gender and and sexual belonging

Message  Philippe-Henri le Lun 14 Nov - 9:32

A Muriel

The International Council of Women (ICW) is an organization working across national boundaries for the common cause of advocating human rights for women. It has been in life since 1888, representing dozens of women's organizations from 9 countries today: Canada, the United States, Ireland, India, England, Finland, Denmark, France and Norway. Women from professional organizations, trade unions, arts groups and benevolent societies participate. National Councils are affiliated to the ICW and thus make themselves heard at international level. The ICW enjoys consultative status with the UN and its Permanent Representatives to: ECOSOC, ILO, FAO, WHO, UNDP, UNEP, UNESCO, UNICEF, UNCTAD, UNIDO, etc.

Of course, I support such goals. Despite major progress over the last century, there is still a long way to go to full emancipation of women. Why does it take that long ? First, all countrties in the world are not at the same level of development. Second, human masses sustain Newton’s law of INERTIA, i.e. the quality in concrete matter (mass) that lets it stay still if it is still, or keeps it moving if it is moving. Now, the mass of women « weigh » more than half of world population !

My criticism and comments on this Forum about « masculin and féminin » did aim not at men/women as biological beings, but at the stupid confusion between grammatical gender and and sexual belonging. When the French, say LE soleil and LA lune, they dont « masculinize »  or « feminize » material objects. They just apply the rules of French grammar. Thus, claims by feminists and suffragettes, who favour nominal feminization of jobs, functions, rights, roles and titles, as well as the ridiculous hype of « gender neutrality » are definitely NUTS, nonsense !  

(By the way, there is also an International Council on Women’s Business Leadership  ─ ICWBL. It depends on a U.S. public body and solely serves American business interests : American economic policy development, global economic growth etc. But this is another story.)
