Dear feminists, do you ever feel that you are trading responsibility for domestic/household affairs for submission to a giant, nameless & faceless corporate machine and idealized vision of success?

I read "dear feminists" and was like oh boy...but this is actually pretty funny lol. But I agree with Citi, it's all about balance. It's not housewife or investment banker. There are plenty of other fulfilling careers that allow a lot of involvement at home.

Those are two very different ends of the spectrum. There are many manifestations that aren't June Cleaver or the Machine.

1. I could ask the same question to "masculists" like you, why would you trade responsibility for domestic affairs for an idealised vision of success? Just stay home, do houseworks and let women go to work, the world would be such a better place. 2. Women who work rather than staying home are not "feminist", they are "normality" in the XXI century. Grow up.

Equality isn't about no domestic chores at all. A feminist person who lives alone still has to do all the chores, and a feminist couple do half each.

The machine pays. Homemaking does not. Personally, I know which option I want. Most feminists would say that it's about having the option of a fair shot at a corporate career.

Barclays 2, I'm a very strong believer that we should all have equal access to political and economic opportunity, regardless of gender. It was a more of a question, not a dig. Sometimes it seems modern feminist attitudes gravitate towards an exchange of existing roles within a predetermined hegemonic system vs a true reimagining of societal power structures and what those look like in a gender-neutral, non-heteronormative world.

Also curious about switching away from the technology stack that I've mostly built my expertise around (EPM/CPM) to more broader analytics / SaaS toolsets... How hard is that transition?

Is this a red flag? - I interviewed for a financial analyst role with a company -

Had several rounds of interviews back in May, all signs pointed to that they all loved my resume and personality and I made a great impression. I was told that the role was on hold due to “beaucracy” but the hiring manager from the role has kept in touch. He then reached out to me yesterday asking if I’m still interested and want to move forward..no offer letter, just gauging my interest.
