more good thoughts on women and college (Karen)

Kim, whose blog Mother-Lode is not only full of wisdom but is one of the most visually lovely blogs I have seen, gave College Girl kudos in December and I didn't discover it until this morning. Her own thoughts on college for women is a must read and the comments from others are thoughtful. Here is a taste:

"....the current Christian reaction leaves us feeling that after high school a godly father should essentially warehouse his daughter until he finds a husband for her. It seems there are two fundamental misconceptions underlying this flawed idea of Christian womanhood. 1) A girl's preparation for life should have more to do with her office as a wife & mother than it does with who she is as a creation of God. 2) Being a "Keeper at Home" involves nothing more than cooking, cleaning and childbearing."

You can read the rest here.
