Funny Bussiness: A Woman Career

Margo Channing, di All About Eve (1950)

Funny business, a woman’s career – the things you drop on your way up the ladder so you can move faster. You forget you’ll need them again when you get back to being a woman.

That’s one career all females have in common, whether we like it or not: being a woman. Sooner or later, we’ve got to work at it, no matter how many other careers we’ve had or wanted.

And in the last analysis, nothing’s any good unless you can look up just before dinner or turn around in bed, and there he is. Without that, you’re not a woman. You’re something with a French provincial office or a book full of clippings, but you’re not a woman. Slow curtain, the end.

All About Eve adalah film legendaris yang tayang lebih dari setengah abad yang lalu. Dan Quote diatas enggak pernah saya lupain. Sebuah reminder bagi para wanita yang hidup di akhir zaman.

It’s actually a very funny reminder.
Karir sebagai wanita, yang buat saya, saya gak ngerti dari mana mulainya. Bagaimana penilaiannya, sistem gajinya, kenaikan pangkat dan promosi jabatannya. How can I say that I’ll be good enough when I starting a career in ‘woman world’.

I dont have any academic transcript or degree on that major nor have any idea about the subject should be taken to achieve on of those. I simply feel don’t have any knowledge to be one good and dedicated woman.

Let’s just think about it later, later.
