Half of US women feel more successful than their man
New York: A new poll has found that nearly half of all American women think they are doing much better in their career than the man in their life.
Forty-nine percent of women say that they feel more successful than their significant other, and 78 percent feel they are doing well in their chosen field, according to the March issue of Women’s Health magazine.
"It’s great to see a finding like this," the New York Post quoted Lisa Bain, the magazine’s executive editor as saying.
"It’s a measure of how confident women are feeling these days, and how many more opportunities they feel they have in their careers.
Women also have high ambitions these days. The magazine poll of 900 women showed that women today don’t feel they’ve made it until they are making at least 100,000 dollars a year.
Bain says that now that women are bringing home the bacon men aren’t feeling inferior.
"The feedback we get . . . is that the guys in their lives don’t feel threatened by their success—they’re more likely to get a kick out of it," she said. "Maybe that’s because the women themselves are comfortable with it, as our poll showed—70 percent of them say they don’t need for their partner to have more career success than they do," Bain added.
