Physicist 27 Sep 2012 #1As an American who has also lived in Europe for a while, it seems to me many Polish women and other women from the "eastern" countries don't treat education seriously. Instead, they seem very satisfied with being a housewife or working in unskilled labor (especially Polish women who move to the United States). This is one of the reasons why I consider myself a feminist. Gender roles should not exist. A recent study showed that western women are starting to become more likely to graduate from college. My girlfriend who is American is currently a Ph.D candidate in Biophysics. Personally, for me it's a huge turn on when a woman is intelligent and educated.^I meant in that study that western women are starting to become more likely to graduate than men!
