Role Reversal Is Coming

Matriarchy is coming! Rasa Von Werder told you so!

Rasa Von Werder have been teaching / preaching this for years – Now it is
upon us!  Matriarchy is at our doorstep!

From friend “Gold”
Hi Guru Rasa,

Thank you for posting my note to you. Your leadership and courage have
been an inspiration. The issues that you've highlighted touch the central
nerve of the frightened patriarchy.

I wanted to send you some links that show that the Matriarchy that you've
prophesied is already coming into fruition. Recently, Time Magazine had a
cover story called "The Richer Sex." It points out that Women are
overtaking men as the breadwinners in our society. Families are being
transformed with Women at the head. The ducational shift that we've talked
about for years now is shown to be the source of the change and, moreover,
as Women continue to outpace men in school, the gap of high-achieving,
powerful Women over men is only set to get larger. It even says that men
are now choosing power and wealth as desired attributes of Women. The
links are below.

I bow before you.        Humbly,  Gold

The richer sex: Female workers set to earn more than men in EVERY
profession within 25 years

By Daily Mail Reporter

PUBLISHED: 18 March 2012 | UPDATED: 19 March 2012

Women in the workforce are set to earn more than men for the first time in
history, according to new research.

The next generation of female employees in the U.S. will take home more
money than their male peers across all sectors of employment.

The phenomenon marks such a cultural shift in the American way of life
that author and journalist Liza Mundy used it as the basis for her book,
The Richer Sex.

decades women will overtake men in the earning stakes in the U.S.

Ms Mundy's research found that in U.S. cities, single women in their
twenties with no children, on average make more than men, according to
Time Magazine.

She wrote: 'Almost 40 per cent of working wives out-earn their husbands' -
and this number was rising.

Over the next few decades, professions like law, medicine and veterinary
medicine will be predominantly run by women.

The Richer Sex addresses many of the gender issues that will be met along
the way - and how it will revolutionize how we date, set up home, get
married and raise children.

A report last year from the Government found that although women in the
U.S. have made huge strides economically and in education in the past 50
years, at present they still make less money than men.

The report, billed by the White House as its most comprehensive study on
the state of women in 50 years, said women gained more college degrees
than men but were more likely to live in poverty.

Richer Sex (right), on new evidence that single women in their twenties
earn more than their male peers

The 2011 study, titled Women in America: Indicators Of Social And Economic
Well-Being, pieced together data from a half a dozen government agencies.

It found that the greatest changes for women had been their gains in
education and in the workforce - which has resulted in people marrying

College-educated women get married on average around the age of 30,
compared with 26 for women who don't go to college.

The proportion of women who are married has dropped from 72 per cent in
1970 to 62 per cent in 2009.

However Ms Mundy's research has found that marriage rates for women in
high-income brackets were on the rise as opposed to low-earners.

Why Men Are Attracted to High-Earning Women
There used to be a romantic stigma for single women who made money, but
those days are numbered
By Liza Mundy | @lizamundy | March 15, 2012 |

Mundy's latest book is The Richer Sex: How the New Majority of Female
Breadwinners Is Transforming Sex, Love and Family

Today’s high-earning women are justly proud of their paychecks — I explore
the rise of the female breadwinner in this week’s TIME cover story — but
they still often feel that men will be intimidated rather than attracted
to them as potential mates. They think their success will seem too
threatening and be held against them. As a result, some women in the
dating pool devise camouflage mechanisms. A young ob-gyn working in
Pittsburgh tells men she meets that she “works at the hospital, taking
care of patients” — subtly encouraging the idea that she’s a nurse, not a
doctor. When a university vice president in south Texas was on the dating
market, she would vaguely tell men she worked in the school’s
administrative offices and avoid letting them walk her to her car for fear
they would see her BMW. “I want them to give me a chance,” says the
Pittsburgh doctor. “I want them to at least not walk away immediately.”

But a growing body of research shows that while there may have once been a
stigma to making money, high-earning women actually have an advantage in
the dating-and-marriage market. In February 2012, the Hamilton Project, a
Brookings Institution initiative that tracks trends in earnings and life
prospects, found that marriage rates have risen for top female earners —
the share of women in the very top earning percentile who are married grew
by more than 10 percentage points — even as they have declined for women
in lower earning brackets. (The report also suggested that the decline in
those lower brackets may be because women can support themselves and are
dissuaded from marriage by the declining earnings of men.)

(MORE: Quiz: Who Has the Power in Your Household?)

We got the first indication of a major shift back in 2001 with a study by
University of Texas at Austin psychologist David Buss that showed that
when men ranked traits that were important in a marital partner, there had
been a striking rise in the importance they gave to women’s earnings and a
sharp drop in the value they placed on domestic skills. Similarly,
University of Wisconsin demographer Christine Schwartz noted in a 2010
study in the American Journal of Sociology that “men are increasingly
looking for partners who will ‘pull their own weight’ economically in
marriage” and are willing to compete for them.

Indeed, men may be readier to cede their role as breadwinner than they are
given credit for. Last year, Stanford University economist Ran Abramitzky,
working with two European colleagues, published a fascinating study that
suggests exactly this. Looking at demographic records for the French
population after World War I, they found that men in regions that had
suffered higher mortality rates (and were therefore short on men) were
more able to “marry up.” Given the opportunity to marry into a life with
more resources and prospects, the men hastened to do so. To Abramitzky,
the surprise was “how flexible this marriage market was” and how quickly
men were able to adapt to the changing demographics.

Now that women are poised to become the major breadwinners in a majority
of families within the next generation, this research suggests that men
will be just as adaptive and realize what an advantage a high-earning
partner can be. Men are just as willing as women to marry up, and life is
now giving them the opportunity to do so. So, women, own up to your
accomplishments, buy him a drink, and tell him what you really do.

Liza Mundy's 'The Richer Sex' Predicts Gender Role Reversal
'The Richer Sex' by Liza Mundy predicts a sea change in the way men and
women relate to each other.

We’ve heard a lot about the downfall of marriage lately; less than half of
adults in the U.S. are married, according to the latest 2011 PEW Study.

But at one demographic has seen a recent increase in marriage rates:
high-earning women. The implications of this phenomenon on everything from
the economy to our sex lives is the subject of a new book by Liza Mundy:
“The Richer Sex: How the New Majority of Female Breadwinners Is
Transforming Sex, Love and Family,” on sale Tuesday, March 20 and featured
on the March 15 cover of TIME magazine.

Mundy bases her argument in part on the findings of The Hamilton Project,
which studied income and work patterns and found that while women in lower
income brackets were getting married in smaller numbers, marriage rates
for women in the top earning percentile increased by ten percentage
points, suggesting that with increased work opportunities for women, more
women are choosing marital as well as financial independence -- though
women who have reached he pinnacles of financial success are pairing off
in increasing numbers. As Mundy describes it, the reason for the uptick is
that men view a woman's earning power as more attractive than ever before.
And that, Mundy claims, means we're in for a huge dismantling -- in some
cases a complete reversal -- of traditional gender roles.

One of the signs of what Mundy describes in the book as the "Big Shift" is
women's academic prowess. 57 percent of undergraduates are female, and
women earn the majority of doctorates and master’s degrees, leading some
experts to suggest that in a quarter century, medicine and law fields will
be dominated by women. While some, like UK Universities Minister David
Willetts, have suggested that the gender gap in education will lead women
to “dumb themselves down” or hide their success to catch a husband, Mundy
argues the opposite: “Men are just as willing as women to marry up, and
life is now giving them the opportunity to do so.”

As proof, she cites a 2001 study led by psychologist David Buss at The
University of Texas at Austin that found a vast change in the values men
reported looking for in a mate: Over a 50 year period, the importance men
placed on a woman’s income and ability to support herself rose
astronomically while a once-strong emphasis on her domestic skills
plummeted. Changing ideas of masculinity and the fact that men are now
more involved at home have a lot to do with that, Mundy suggests.

While not all of her predictions for future gender dynamics are positive,
one thing is clear: The days when pop culture can call to mind a strictly
female “Gold-digger” are numbered.

Female Breadwinners Is Transforming Sex, Love and Family"

More Families Will Be Supported By Women Than Men
The 2009 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Survey found that in 4 out of 10
working couples, wives out-earned their husbands -- essentially doubling
this figure in two decades.

Book Description
Publication Date: March 20, 2012
A revolution is under way.

Within a generation, more households will be supported by women than by
men. In The Richer Sex, Liza Mundy takes us to the exciting frontier of
this new economic order: she shows us why this flip is inevitable, what
painful adjustments will have to be made along the way, and how both men
and women will feel surprisingly liberated in the end.

    The bestselling author and Washington Post writer goes deep inside
the lives of the couples on this cutting edge to paint of picture of
how dating, marriage, and home life are changing. How does this new
generation of breadwomen navigate paying for a night on the town? In
whose interest is it to delay commitment? Are men for the first time
thinking of marriage the way women used to—as a bet on the economic
potential of a spouse? In this new world of men marrying up,  are
women learning to value new realms of male endeavor—like parenting,
protection, and a margarita at the ready?

    The future is here, with couples today debating who must assume the
responsibility of primary earner and who gets the freedom of being
the slow track partner. With more men choosing to stay home, Mundy
shows how that lifestyle has achieved a higher status and all the
ways males have found to recover their masculinity. And the
revolution is global: Mundy takes us from Japan to Denmark to show
how both sexes are adapting as the marriage market has turned into a
giant free-for-all, with men and women at different stages of this
transformation finding partners in other countries who match their

    The Richer Sex is a wild ride into the future, grounded in Mundy’s
peerless journalism, and bound to cause women and men of all
generations to rethink what this social upheaval will mean.

Hi Rasa

Don't know if it is possible for you to see this in USA, but it is worth
the look if
you can. It is a mainstream TV program about the ancient Goddess religion.
