I am truly alarmed to hear about this full quiver movement because I think my daughter and niece are both caught up in it. There are quite a few young women who think feminism is a bunch of hooey and the best route is to get a good husband, be a housewife, and never have to work at a job. What about when you realize you're trapped in servitude when you have a half dozen kids and you're not even 30?
May 2019 be better for us all.

Here's one BetterMost woman, not in her 20s, explaining why she believes in equal rights for women but doesn't consider herself a feminist: http://bettermost.net/forum/index.php/topic,32656.msg488241.html#msg488241
 

Yes, I've known Louise (on the internet) for some time.  And she can bloody well look after herself.

Well, after the 18th or 19th kid, they might need a little variety to get the 20th Blessed Event off the ground.

About the part of your post I bolded:

That's exactly right, but it has family and social implications as well.  There's nothing more effective for keeping women in general and families in particular in their place like having more children than they can support.  High birthrates are one of the best vehicles for regressive social engineering there is.

Sorry to hear about your daughter and niece -- I hope they get some better information.  {{ hugs }}

Marcia! Are you saying Santa Claus doesn't exist? 

Depends on who's your daddy.

Parenthood is now the equivalent of servitude? I guess if we're all gonna be "free" the species will have to die out.

Of course you do, and of course she can. I know her on the internet as well as in Real Life™, and can verify that in both venues Louise is quite capable and self-sufficient.

You sound angry about something or other, or so I gather from your use of "bloody well" as an adverb. But once again, I don't really know what you're getting at. Are you saying that Louise need not call herself a feminist because she can bloody well look after herself (requiring no help from feminism), or that by linking to her post I am implying she can not bloody well look after herself well enough to provide her own link? If it's the latter, is it your opinion that providing a link to other people's germane writing on a topic implies some sort of assumed helplessness on the part of the person who is linked? That would be a notion I haven't encountered before on the internet, where links to other writing are actually quite common. Me, I generally like it when someone provides a link to something I have written, and don't take it to mean the linker considers me incapable of bloody well looking after myself.
