Young women don't put up with a fraction of the crap that women used to.

In Kiribatti men brag about women there having fewer rights than a dog.
So who breast fed them? Their dogs? It shows man, it really shows!
( Wait til those suckers down at the sperm bank find out who the real donor was!)

Hey I like strong women who go after what they want. That is what I helped raise two daughters to do. And they are off doing there things. I have no trouble sharing responsibilities with strong women.

I must say, in defense of men. Many younger men are "with it" and not "amazed" by women doing non traditional things. So.. there is hope

Not really the case in all cases Denise - I'm a geezer and before I "defer" to either I always feel things out to see who's in charge when a man & woman are on a boat. I've found with older and/or very experienced couples, oftentimes no-one is "in charge", any more than they are in long term marriages.

I don't think it's so much being "amazed" as it being uncommon - as I've said before, women in command of their own boats are still pretty unusual. There are about 800 boats in my marina and I've yet to see a woman taking a boat out, either alone or "in charge".

Lots of us would like to see a lot more of it.

ADMIRAL MICHELLE HOWARD


Admiral Howard is a 1978 graduate of Gateway High School in Aurora, Colorado. She graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1982 and from the Army’s Command and General Staff College in 1998, with a Masters in Military Arts and Sciences.


Howard’s initial sea tours were aboard USS Hunley (AS 31) and USS Lexington (AVT 16). While serving on board Lexington, she received the secretary of the Navy/Navy League Captain Winifred Collins award in May 1987. This award is given to one woman officer a year for outstanding leadership. She reported to USS Mount Hood (AE 29) as chief engineer in 1990 and served in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. She assumed duties as first lieutenant on board the USS Flint (AE 32) in July 1992. In January 1996, she became the executive officer of USS Tortuga (LSD 46) and deployed to the Adriatic in support of Operation Joint Endeavor, a peacekeeping effort in the former Republic of Yugoslavia. Sixty days after returning from the Mediterranean deployment, Tortuga departed on a West African training cruise, where the ship’s Sailors, with embarked Marines and U.S. Coast Guard detachment, operated with the naval services of seven African nations.


She took command of USS Rushmore (LSD 47) on March 12, 1999, becoming the first African American woman to command a ship in the U.S. Navy. Howard was the commander of Amphibious Squadron Seven from May 2004 to September 2005. Deploying with Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG) 5, operations included tsunami relief efforts in Indonesia and maritime security operations in the North Arabian Gulf. She commanded Expeditionary Strike Group Two from April 2009 to July 2010. In 2009, she deployed to CENTCOM theater, where she commanded Task Force 151, Multi-national Counter-piracy effort, and Task Force 51, Expeditionary Forces. In 2010, she was the Maritime Task Force commander for BALTOPS, under 6th Fleet.


Her shore assignments include: J-3, Global Operations, Readiness and executive assistant to the Joint Staff director of Operations; deputy director N3 on the OPNAV staff; deputy director, Expeditionary Warfare Division, OPNAV staff; senior military assistant to the secretary of the Navy; Chief of Staff to the director for Strategic Plans and Policy, J-5, Joint Staff, deputy commander, US Fleet Forces Command, and Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Operations, Plans & Strategy (N3/N5). She currently serves as the 38th Vice Chief of Naval Operations.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

...and my duly respect to her accomplishments..
A black, female Admiral in the U.S. Navy Growing up in the 60's I never thought I'd live to see something like that, let alone a black POTUS (even if he is only male. )

Phenomenal change in societal attitudes within 1/2 a lifetime.

P.S. "Military Arts"?
