Why are women not using their brains?

Despite neural research irrefutably substantiating the capability of the female brain and exhibiting the multi-leveled, macro and long term-viewed, multi-tasking, societal synthesis-orientation and other unique capabilities of female brains, this resource remains largely untapped.

A landmark circa 2003 New York Times article cited that 50% of college graduates and entry level professionals are women, but 10 years later only 1/3 of these women remain in the work force; the September 2005 'What do Yale Women Want' (Stabiner, Karen. "What Yale Women Want." Los Angeles Times. Friday, September 23, 2005) article cited only approximately one third of women wanting to work. This can only be construed as a gross misuse of talent, human capability and brain power.

It is a mystery why females do not demand a higher deployment of their brains and women's lack of actualization is a human productivity loss and psychological tragedy.

It is certainly true that work may not absorb women's brains in a fulfilling way, particularly in the limited majority of work force roles that are currently still available to women, but men may be equally unfulfilled at work. That work in general is not fulfilling and that both men and women are not using their full brain power is an embarrassing commentary on the state of affairs of society, which has been recently pointed up by Daniel Pink in A Whole New Mind and others. Women are less willing to put up with something that does not work for them as men are, men do not think they have any option other than to work.

Men should be observed, are equally at fault, if they do not find the work force fulfilling, they too are responsible for devising an alternative; with the money and stature social hypnosis it is hard for men to notice that a better alternative may be warranted. In a post-economic imperative and ectogenesis-acceptable society, how much female and male brain actualization will be occurring?
