I have three daughters, so I can't be as tough as I want to be. When you have kids - especially daughters - they know how to work you. They're a lot smarter than we are, that's for sure. But I'll be more tough on their boyfriends.
The young women in my classes are feisty and clever and believe, often with the passion of youthful optimism, that feminism is a battle already won. I worry for them - and for my daughters, too.

We've begun to raise daughters more like sons... but few have the courage to raise our sons more like our daughters.
I was raised, myself, by extremely strict but also extremely loving Chinese immigrant parents.
