A timeline of questions to a young woman
By Dr. Sally Dinan
‘Are you studying hard? Year 12 is an important year!’
‘What are you going to do at university? It’s important for women to get a degree!’
‘Do you have a boyfriend?’ It’s great to study, but remember to have balance.
‘Now that you have a Bachelor Degree, will you go on to study Master’s?’
‘Do you have a job now that you have finished uni? You need work experience!’
‘Are you going to travel?’ Better see the world.
‘Are you sure you’re not travelling too much?’ Better save for a house.
‘You’ve had a boyfriend for a while, when will you get married?’
‘You’re married now, why have you not changed your name? Are you a feminist? Yes, you’ve created a professional reputation in your industry, but how does your husband feel about that? ‘
‘When are you going to have a baby? Life’s not all about career, you know?’
‘You’re backpacking again?’
‘When are you going to have a baby? ‘
‘Do you even like kids?’
