A Legacy of Feminism?

Interesting and agenda-driven article from In it, Suzanne Fields highlights a growing trend, the increasing number of women who are not waiting around for recalcitrant or inept husbands and are taking matters and tools into their own hands.

Now I'm pretty handy myself, although the hubby is something of a Renaissance handyman.
There is something about being able to take control of your environment when the window won't open, or the toilet won't stop running, or someone neglected to replace the moldings after his latest home improvement project that is indeed liberating. And while I'm not willing to swear off feminism just yet, Fields does make some valid points.

What is it about women and "molding"? Hubby replaces 15 windows, saves thousands of dineros, and our 'better half' grouses because the moldings aren't replaced by nightfall. Ain't this why God made window treatments?
