NYT über Frauen in Deutschland

Ten years into the 21st century, most schools in Germany still end at lunchtime, a tradition that dates back nearly 250 years. That has powerfully sustained the housewife/mother image of German lore and was long credited with producing well-bred, well-read burghers. Modern Germany may be run by a woman — Chancellor Angela Merkel, routinely called the world’s most powerful female politician — but it seems no coincidence that she is childless.

Unter dem Titel The Female Factor – In Germany, a Tradition Falls, and Women Rise widmet sich die New York Times der Rolle der Mutter in Deutschland – sehr lesenswert nicht nur für Menschen, die unlängst das Zeit-Stück über den symbolischen Vater gelesen haben.
