Why is This Video So Important
Peterson expands upon the true values of life, that
Peterson breaks down the argument of a glass ceiling for women in the professional world. He dismisses the argument that a group of “patriarchal men” decide to keep women down. Rather it is the reality of life as a woman. He pushes further arguing why women even want to be as crazy as men to work so hard? For people who work hard, work overtakes their lives,

The Pill Changed Everything
Peterson explains how the pill made women’s situation worse, not better. Marriage used to protect women. Today mostly only rich people get married. What stops lower income women from getting married, is not having a need to get married, because of the pill. The female as gatekeeper for sex and children was a protector of women, but that gate no longer exists with women today taking the pill. While more opportunities have opened up for women, with more equality and life choices, it has also brought upon many more challenges. Not because of “inequality” or a “patriarchy” but because of the realities of life. Peterson has a very unique perspective on this that is rarely heard, but it should be heard.

Women can and do reach top professional goals. The mistake is thinking that women and men are the same. They are not. It is not an insult to understand that a woman/mother is an anchor for a family. Yes, the husband/father must be involved, the more the better. Yet, still, the mother is the mother. Having a family takes time and part of that falls solely on the woman. Sometimes things take longer for women and that is ok! We can have our cake and eat, albeit just eating a bit slower.
This Peterson video presentation is fabulous, and an important perspective to be heard by all, men and women alike. Maybe some people, both men
