This is a REAL problem that women everywhere face! You are not alone. That said, I think you do have a choice. We can't control the shit society says, but we can control how we react to it and the actions we take. You can place your dreams, ambition and career at the top. You can choose whether to have a kid or not. It's important to keep reminding yourself about the power you do have over your own life, otherwise it can become a dangerous spiral. Let's lead by example, and be the women that others draw inspiration from! :)
