    In The H-Spot, Filipovic argues that the main obstacle standing in between women and happiness is a rigged system. In this world of unfinished feminism, men have long been able to "have it all" because of free female labor while the bar of achievement for women has only gotten higher. Never before have women at every economic level had to work so much (whether it's to be an accomplished white-collar employee or just make ends meet). Never before have the standards of feminine perfection been so high.

    In 1953, when her youngest child was born, Dana Mazurek’s life looked a lot like the lives of other women of her generation. Born in rural West Virginia, she met Ed when she was a striking 21-year-old and he a handsome Marine who had recently returned from the Pacific theater. They were married within a year and headed for Chicago to live near his Polish-American family. By the time Dana was 30, she was a homemaker with five children, all skinny like their mom and blond like their dad, with the kinds of names that sound perfect for a charming family sitcom: Rosie, Mikey, Vicky, Timmy, Mary.

    "What Women Get from Work" is from the April 29, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Jill Filipovic and narrated by Kristi Burns.

    The high-achieving elder daughter of President-elect Donald J. Trump is, on the surface, a glowing picture of modern American womanhood: a mother of three young children who built a business that bears her name. A glamorous figure whom it would be easy to picture balancing a baby in one hand and a briefcase in the other, all in her own branded high heels.

    "Ivanka Trump's Dangerous Fake Feminism" is from the January 13, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Jill Filipovic and narrated by Barbara Benjamin-Creel.

    Historically, women weren’t supposed to need their individual identity to be formed through work, because women weren’t supposed to have individual identities at all: They melded into their husband’s identity when they married. Women’s identities have long been relational — daughter, wife, mother — rather than individual.

    "What Women Get From Work" is from the April 29, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Jill Filipovic and narrated by Kristi Burns.
