If the woman is smarter or better educated, and thus more efficient in a given position, that fact only begets envy and further repression. Only in the desperation that is Africa is this “reaction” somewhat suspended.

In America we saw what women could do during WW II.

It is the unintelligent, the illiterate, the uneducated, the unskilled, the unproductive, i.e. those without a job and no prospect of one that are reproducing like rabbits to form a bubble of people for whom society has no place.

In this mosaic, it may be that for a number of women of education and determination it may be possible to overcome the “five factors [of]…access to finance; legal and social status; barriers to entrepreneurship; lack of education and training”. But in the mostly male-dominated economic “basket-case” economies there is no shortage of “willing hands” but of jobs they can productively do.

In each of these, the need to get males economically productive is directly associated with civil unrest if they don’t. Each such job “taken” by a woman is one lost to a man. If the woman is smarter or better educated, and thus more inefficient in a given position, that fact only begets envy and further repression. Only in the desperation that is Africa does suspend somewhat.

In America we say what women could do during WW II. We also saw them “sent packing” back to the home and hearth when the men came home. How many years has it taken in the most progressive nation in the world for women to achieve a “place” in the American workplace?
