Should Women go to work after marriage? which is better suited for a woman post marriage? being a home maker or being a career oriented woman? This has been the hot topic in the talk shows in the past two weeks. Raging debates, with active participation from both men and woman, talking for and against the view. Everyone talked with their personal experience as proof/reason for their view. Several interesting points came up.
One main point, almost all the people who participated were either teachers/lecturers or IT people or Bankers. There was very little or no representation from other industries. May be these are the sectors which heavily employ women? Definitely not i should say. Infact, i read in a magazine. According to some survey, job for women apdina udanay first thonara jobs ennava irukumnu ketrukaanga. The result was predominantly in favour of front office personnel/models based on their looks (this brought lot of criticism but a real fact), nurses following close second with teachers coming a distant third.
There were many points raised by working women, who didnt want to go to work because they said, they missed being with their children when their kids needed them and also that they miss seeing them grow, uttering their first words, unable to go out with their hubbies or spend time with their inlaws (ithu mega dupe). When a guy goes for work..he misses all these things too. Wonder why no one asked a dad as to how he feels to miss his kids first utterences and things like that. Motherhood is saintly. Divine. No questions asked or no criticism raised. Agreed. But give some thought to a dads plight also, people.
All these days women liberation, equality, same pay.. all those stuff were there and were quite rightly fought for. Now that women are into almost all the fields as men are, why the cribbing that they miss their motherhood. The fact which irks me is that, its really people who can afford to send their kids to a creche or daycare center are the ones who crib the loudest. Imagine the plight of garment/export office lady workers or those into construction jobs, daily wagers and all. The fact is that they dont even have a representation itself says volumes of their plight. People talk of empowering women with work. Well these people are not working to establish their "empowerment" but rather are forced to do such hardwork for their daily bread. Does anyone questions them as to how do they feel when they are not around to hear their new borns first word?? Whether they are working out of choice or for want of a better living?
