Adultery, pornography, broken homes, domestic abuse, abusive children, poor mental, physical, and emotional health, illness, disease, dysfunctional schools, heart disease now killing too many women; these problems plague our families and nations. They break women’s hearts. They not only break our hearts, but our nations. They are of profound seriousness. Families and nations don’t thrive under these conditions, and despite law after law being passed to try to alleviate these problems, they still grow and grow. But we have hope. This movement holds the key and the cure to these problems. This hope, key, and cure stand to affect us all in more ways than can be imagined. This movement is called Fascinating Womanhood and is at the heart of the Pro-Feminine movement.
Today’s wives and mothers have found their greatest freedom. For those who have small children and are needed full time at home, we now have the tools to do this besides keep loving, romantic marriages that keep our homes secure. When we are not compelled to work outside the home for many reasons, we have freedom from tyrannical bosses. Freedom from unfair wages and promotions. Freedom from dividing our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls between work and family. We’ve found our freedom by coming home. When we have this, we are truly free: financially, emotionally, and creatively. Our hearts are free to love, free to give, free to be and become who we really are, free to get to know who we really are, and free with our schedules. We manage all these freedoms with more skill, professionalism, and resourcefulness than ever and it has the ability to heal us, our families, and our nation.
We find much mental happiness in our freedom to create within the household. It doesn’t take a menial laborer to become one of the Pro-Feminine Movement’s wives and mothers, it takes someone great at multi-tasking, which just happens to be what women excel at. For example, we don’t just decorate the inside of our homes, we study the subject, then we observe our family members to decide which colors, fabrics, art, and décor best suits the growth of their personalities and development. We then shop around for the highest quality at the best prices to implement our plan. And if we can’t find what we’re looking for, we make it ourselves. We are expressing ourselves, we are treasuring our family members, and we are all growing healthier in every aspect.
Not just anyone can love the way a round-the-clock wife and mother can. Here, in our profession, we know that love is reciprocal – we must give it to receive it – and the more we give, the more we get. We need it, we share it, and we grow in it. We are finding happiness that can’t be found anywhere else in the world, and that is in our very own homes.
The feminist movement gave us so-called “liberation” to face life outside the home. We were given the means to find substitutes for the care that wives and mothers traditionally gave their families, by using daycare, earlier and later compulsory age requirements in schools, three-meal-a-day daycares and schools, fast-food restaurants, and quick-fix-it boxed meals to replace home cooked meals.
School teachers try to take over character training for our children, therapists are too often taking over teaching our children to play and get to know themselves as well as interacting with others. Counselors take over the wise counsel and understanding that once only a mother could give, and tax-funded social services for families and communities are growing astronomically. All of these substitutes and services have cost and continue to cost our nations incalculable amounts of money both publicly and privately but were once provided to our families and society from devoted, round-the-clock wives and mothers.
What we’ve learned through our “liberation from the home” was that these substitute services can’t hold a candle to what we can provide. We are irreplaceable. When people are paid to give these services, they do it for money; when women choose to give of themselves to providing these services, they do it out of and for love. Maternal love is the missing ingredient. There’s only one way to develop this love, as today’s wives and mothers have found out, and that is through the devoted day-in/day-out care of our own families. We’re here, we’re on the job - though be it at home - and we’re excelling. We’ve tried the substitutes, now we’re all ready for the real thing. We’re indispensable, irreplaceable, and we’re in love with our families.
Perhaps here, more than anywhere else is where the greatest avenue of change lies. When “the battle of the sexes” began, we couldn’t just leave it in the workforce, but it unfortunately came home with us. It has grown and grown. We don’t want to live this way. We refuse to be abused and we refuse to abuse. We have found the golden keys to prevention—Fascinating Womanhood and the Pro-Feminine movement. We have reexamined the attributes of men and women and studied their undeniable differences. We have stopped believing that men and women’s functions in the home and society are gender fluid, but now know that these functions, while very different, are of equal importance. In the Pro-Feminine movement, we have removed the battle lines, laid our weapons down, and are making peace in our homes. We choose to speak in kindness and wisdom to our family members. We refuse to continually put them down and treat them as if they are of little importance. We love them, and they love us. If there is to be peace on earth, it must begin at home. We’re here. We’re today’s peacekeepers, and not only are we living the ways of peace, but we are teaching our children these ways. We are encouraging our husbands in these paths of peace by offering them the love, understanding, and intuition that only their wives can provide them, and we just happen to be lowering our blood pressures, stress levels, and agitation in the process, not to mention giving these healthful gifts to our families.
We can have loving, secure, healthy, happy, capable adults due to this movement. Every citizen will see the marvelous fruits of the New Fascinating Womanhood Pro-Feminine movement in the years to come. We all win: round-the-clock wives and mothers because we are being restored to a place of honor and dignity in our society; husbands because they are being welcomed back with open arms to their roles of honor, strength, and provision; our children, because they are being valued as treasures - the greatest of all our national resources; and society as a whole, because a nation is only as strong as its families, and in our families lie the strength and character of our nation. In the future it is suspected that we will see with a mighty force the truth in the saying, “The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.” Welcome home, Momma, and thank you!
