Dutch Feminists Target Stay-at-Home Women

, ,

The Brussels Journal reports that Sharon Dijksma, a prominent member of the Dutch Labor Party (PvdA) has introduced legislation which will attempt to recover some portion of the costs of their education from women who choose to stay at home and who fail to pursue careers.

Dijksma’s proposal reflects Dutch state subsidies of education. Consequently, the Labor politician is of the opinion that those who study at the taxpayers’ expense and do not join the workforce are guilty of destruction of social capital.
