Princeton Mom to young women: Graduate with a Degree and a ring

Go to college, get a degree and land a man. That is the basis of a controversial column from Susan Patton, one of the first female Princeton graduates.

Princeton mom: Women have a 'shelf life'

In the letter to the Princeton student newspaper Patton, who has two sons, advises the daughters she never had to:

"Find a husband on campus before you graduate.... Smart women can't (shouldn't) marry men who aren't at least their intellectual equal... There is a very limited population of men who are as smart or smarter than we are. And I say again – you will never again be surrounded by this concentration of men who are worthy of you."

But are those really words of wisdom or are they a huge step backwards for young women?
