I think most JW women toe the party line when it comes to feminism, which is that it is BAD and DEMONIC. Blech. And, sure, most JW women would definitely prefer to stay home over working because they did not go to college and the only work many of them are able to do is low-wage labor, and probably not very enjoyable. Under those circumstances, I, too, would prefer to stay home. In fact, I did stay home when my daughter was small. I loved it. What's the point?
The point is that what women were fighting for in the 60's and 70's wasn't merely the right to hold a job but the right to choose. The role of homemaker can be fulfilling, creative and mindful. But it's not for everyone, just like being a plumber isn't for everyone. Women's liberation was about obtaining recognition as human beings, as independent agents--especially with respect to the body--and as intellectuals. It was about equality with men when it came to personal freedoms, choice and respect. Anyone who thinks it did more damage than good needs to read some of the media of the forties and fifties (or earlier), including the WT's publications. Or reflect on some of the laws. Language and images that we would today consider grotesquely sexist and demeaning was considered normal and acceptable.
