Interesting comments. I am hoping to become a father in the next year or so and am quite sure there will be a pull toward dressing my daughter in the way I want her to. I imagine there would be a pull for a son too, but not as much.

I also think that men can put pressure on themselves in regard to their appearance. While the media doesn't focus nearly as much on men, I spent way more time than I should have yesterday as I got dressed for a presentation.

I will remember (hopefully) your lesson when my child becomes a reality.

Yes, very hard not to judge other women by their appearance - and I am a self-professed "tom-boy". I find myself doing it when I'm out and about, getting coffee, dropping my son off at daycare (when exactly did jogging suits become out-of-the house attire - that applies to men and women :-)

Then I catch myself, slow down, and think - why am I doing that? Who cares? Why do these thoughts pop into my head in the first place? Where did they come from? I try now to push them out as soon as they start - but I am also a people watcher.

About this blog

  • When I took a sabbatical from Wall Street to pursue a different dream and help others live theirs, I learned that women in the U.S. may be placated, even pampered, but because we aren't dreaming, we are also desperate and depressed. Drawing on a variety of sources, ranging from academic studies to pop culture, dare to dream encourages us to dream. And then to act on our dreams.
