Count on our secular government subsidies to place constraints on little girls:
As Christians, we are not boxed in by materialism and money. Or importance according to the world's standard. We encourage vocations--which may or may not include paid work--remembering that the greatest component is the gift of self. That covers motherhood (spiritual, adoptive, and physical), professional outlets, caregiver tasks, mundane jobs, and the fluid dynamics of the average lifespan.
Raising girls to think that "important" careers (doing them for a loooong time!) may distract them from what God finds important--or essential in a given moment. Let's not shackle girls to such shallowness, as Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein) noted in 1932:
The spiritual nature of woman is as little considered as the principles of her historical development. Not only is violence being done to the spirit by a biological misinterpretation and by today's economic trends, but also by the materialistic and fundamental point of view of opposing groups (Problems of Women's Education).
Surely, no one could argue with the need to educate girls, but it's the nature of the education that we dispute--especially formation that ignores their "spiritual nature."
