Thank You Mr. Anand Mahindra For Acknowledging Our Struggles!

Posted: February 9, 2019

The Chairman of Mahindra Group, Mr. Anand Mahindra recently shared a tweet where he acknowledged that working women have to work harder than their male counterparts to succeed at work. The author appreciates his thoughtful gesture.

While compiling the sheets for my next meeting, I checked the pop up message from one of my close friends. Well it was the tweet from Mr. Anand Mahindra where he applauded working women and agreed to the fact that every working woman requires double hard work to be successful vis-a-vis their male peers. In fact yesterday also I came across an article about a working women who had recently joined office after her maternity leave. She demanded a few breaks from her boss so that she could express her milk as each process would take 20-30 minutes. Her boss not only accepted her request but also asked her to let him know if she needed any other assistance.

Such news really motivates working mothers as their hard core efforts are being appreciated. Whether we are working from office or home, our struggles are the same. It requires a lot of multitasking for managing your job, baby and personal relationships.

I am a working mother though manage my work from home. But still I do face a lot of struggles while managing my work along with family responsibilities. I do go through frustrating times when I just want to give up my job. Reading such articles actually give us a ray of hope that some where our employers have started to understand our struggles, situations, mood swings. They inspire us to excel in our careers while managing our family.

In the real scenario we still need more supportive policies for working mothers. As reported by researchers in the journal Women’s Health Issue- only 40% of women have access to both break time and a private space (not a bathroom) for expressing milk, despite federal law requiring both of these.

Well Mr. Mahindra’s tweet is really a good message for corporates to understand the struggles women are facing and is a motivation for working mothers to keep doing the great work.
