We’ve often come across the question, why women drop out of work. But, have we ever thought, why women work? We, the women of India, many a time don’t get the privilege to work or to lead an independent life after we get married and become somebody’s wife, daughter-in-law or mother. But, all around the 25 years we’ve put our mind and soul in getting ourselves educated, competed equally with our male competitors. And, now suddenly, we need to convince our in-laws or take permission from them to work in our respective fields. Let’s have a look at the top reasons on why women work.
1. Daughter’s are Parent’s Pride
The parents of every daughter bring her up with a hope and thought that she will be well educated, socially recognized and will have financial independence. The parents have dreams for their daughters just like they have for their sons. Parents of daughters would always like to introduce their daughters to the world for what they do and not at all for whom they’re married to. So, a woman must always work for her parents, who’ve faced so much difficulties in bringing her up and giving her a good education.
2. Personal Satisfaction
Many people talk about financial independence, social recognition, status and many more. But, the most important reason for a woman to work is her personal satisfaction mentally and emotionally. A woman develops her communication skills, analytical skills and the ability to compete with the rest of the world, when she grows up. In her workplace, she makes a distinct image of her own. She develops her individuality and makes a unique difference in her role in the professional world.
3. Husband’s Support
A working woman becomes her husband’s support in every sphere of life. Apart from sharing financial responsibilities, a working wife is a great mental support to her husband. A husband can very easily share his problems and concerns of his workplace with his wife. And, the woman, who has experience in this corporate world can help him solve his problems to a huge extent. If not solve the problems, can listen to him peacefully or provide certain pieces of advice. This holds up as a huge support to the husbands.
4. Pride for Her Children
A woman, who is professionally excellent and managing her home as well becomes a role model to her children. The effort to strike a balance between the family and profession marks a significance in the lives of the children as well. The education, confidence, ethics, communication skills, potential to excel provide a positive influence to the children as well. Kids, especially the daughters imbibe a lot of positive values from their mothers. Hence, woman work for her children.
5. Maintaining Her Individuality
The most important point in an individual’s life is the individuality, i.e., who he/she is. After studying for so many years and excelling in her respective area of interest, every woman has certain dreams and aspirations in her professional life. She has a career of her own. But, generally what happens is after marriage, she’s just left out with a job and not a career. This not only affects her physical self , but also her mental stability as well. Thus, a woman work to maintain her individuality and her physical self to the world.
These are the top reasons why women work. Above all, whether a woman will work or not must entirely depend on her own choice. She mustn’t be forced or influenced by anybody or any circumstances at all. It’s her life. It’s her choice and it’s her career.
