Career and compromise: women story

Sir, as we said earlier your daughter can work, we are open minded and understand she has a career too. But she disregards home, she comes late, many times doesn’t even cook meals. We told her she should be back by 6 p.m. and should pay some devotion to home. Sometimes she even comes later than our son. Last time she brought a maid on our head. We do not eat food prepared by cooks, nagged parents-in-law of the daughter. I think you should tell your daughter to pay attention to home, we won’t mind if she leaves job.


P.S. She spent same time studying like him, worked hard like him, then why they never expected him to cook when she was late? They never expected him to come home early?  If he wants a career, it is more than enough. Many women face this discrimination in their homes. Are they at fault for making a career or choosing to get married?
A man and woman should share the responsibility equally. If the man is not career oriented, its okay, he can take care of the family. A woman should be treated as a human, and not superhuman. Simple adjustments can be made, and no life should be compromised.

For this year's April A to Z challenge, I will put forward 26 women issues from 26 alphabets. These issues will be inspired by "real-life events" and will highlight social issues and other faced by women.  Some of these issues might be globally prevalent.

    1. Thankyou SG. You will find many back at home, many in middle class homes. After hearing such stories from some women, I really felt pathetic, and realized world is not entirely what we luckily have in our hand.

    2. प्रोफेसर जैसे profession में भी बहुत सारी ऐसी महिलाएं हैं जो इज्ज़त की नौकरी तो करती हैं, जिनमें नौकरी में समय कम देना पड़ता है,पर पूरी रसोई तो उनके ऊपर है ही,अपनी पूरी कमाई भी उन्हें घर में देनी पड़ती है। हां जेबखर्च के रूप में कुछ उन्हें थोड़ा बहुत मिल जाता है और वह उन्हें ही जोड़ने के संघर्ष में जीवन के खूबसूरत रंगों को भूल जाती है।

  2. A true relationship is a mosaic of adjustments, compromises, sacrifices, maturity, understanding... but all this should not be expected only from the daughter-in-law, which is usually the case.
    Aha! And you have caught up with all of us. Great going Shesha :)

  3. It is heart breaking, the construct is such that even questioning a basic sense of equality is not taken in the right spirit!
    A woman is a human, so is a man - he can also be a home maker and she can be a mechanic if that's what they want.
    This is profound, great going Shesha!

  4. The gender roles bias still exists, although things are slowly changing now...especially in nuclear families.

    Lovely post.

    1. I agree CRD, things are changing especially in nuclear family due to absence of monitoring and judgement from the members of extended family.

  6. This is very common for us in our country. No matter how educated a women is, her in laws will expect her to manage both the home and her career. It is sad and they will never encourage their sons to lend a helping hand in the kitchen, as its not a man's job:) Things are change but gradually... in cities its slightly better we find couple's helping one another - if the inlaws join them, then starts all the story...

  7. Despite thinking is changing nowadays n men also started helping their wives in household work but still I feel there are persons who are not happy to see their sons helping their daughter-in-laws.... but when it comes to their own daughter, point of view changes.... There should be some sessions to make them understand that whether daughters or daughter in laws, both need someone to help them out in various activities... As per my thinking if husband n wife works together for household things then they also share a great bond of love and affection towards each other....
