Dorothy wanted more out of her marriage. It was a safe and fun loving relationship. However, with the changes in her career, Dorothy wanted to translate some of her knowledge to her home. If only to improve things, understanding her voice and power grew as more friends explained to her the virtues of being a feminist.
Initially, Albert didn’t think much of these changes. He wanted his wife to feel empowered. He wanted her to prosper and bloom. Happily, Albert supported his wife’s efforts to gain self-actualization.
However, there was a bit of a snag. The dynamics of their relationship changed more than expected. Dorothy felt better than she’d ever felt and used her social reach to help other women find their voice and power. Momentum built.
To the outside, their relationship was becoming the ideal model of modernization. Equals in all levels. But inside, something had gone wrong. A secret started to grow. Little did either know that this secret would one day surface and challenge the very gains feminism had brought to their lives.
There are a few topics that make some feel cautious. This is one of those topics. The very title itself seems to push the comfort levels of a conversation.
Fortunately, this is not one of those sites that will push the envelop to make most readers super uncomfortable. Change is real and inevitable. Might as well have a conversation about it.
