As an educated woman, I was fervent on being a success, earning my own money, whilst maintaining a good level of health, fitness, an active social life and when the time was right - we'd decide when to start a family, where we would both play an equal role as co-parents. I realise now that this was an unrealistic expectation.
At the recent 'Being A Man' conference on the Southbank the mostly male audience were asked how many of them instantly made a sexually loaded assessment of any new woman they were introduced to. Well over half raised their hands. The unasked question was not addressed to the women in the audience, how many of them...I'm not sure we are really that different.
