I would have thought this illegal in Europe, if not, it should be. Until quite recently, women enjoyed lower car insurance premiums because they are safer drivers, but the EU ruled against it as discriminatory practice (statistics or no) and now we all have to pay for boy-racer Herberts.
Anyway, Jung is no great expert on women.
"No one can evade the fact, that in taking up a masculine calling, studying and working in a man's way, woman is doing something not wholly in agreement with, if not directly injurious to, her feminine nature. … Female psychology is founded on the principle of Eros, the great binder and deliverer; while age-old wisdom has ascribed Logos to man as his ruling principle.

It's great that you are fulfilled by your "complementary" role. But to suppose your own view is not narrow and constrained is simply to delude yourself. To promote yourself as enlightened is laughable. To criticise others as people who want to "control through guilt" smacks of projection.By the way all of this was said not to place guilt on those who choose a different way, but to enlighten those who had a narrow view of what a traditional role can look like.
