We say women should progress, but then why do we stop when it comes to finances? We should earn money of our own.
The first thing that a woman forgets is that she has to earn money. She cannot just depend on her husband to provide her food and clothes. Until women’s housework is monetised, just by staying at home we cannot provide anything for ourselves or our family.
We feel that if we work, we will neglect a woman’s “essential and priority duty” which is to take care of the house and kids.
Who will cook for our family? Who will wash the clothes?
Who will take care of the kid? What if the nanny hits our child? What if our child feels neglected?
What if my husband does not get a proper meal? What will happen to the ailing in-laws?
Why did our parents then get us educated?
Why did we spend hours in studying and memorizing history and languages? Why did we learn all those poems? Why did we spend so much time in practicing math? Why did we even learn to write?
Why did we give up our play time to study till our eyes dropped? Why are we not utilizing our childhood education?
Questions about our childhood haunt us.
We say women should progress, but then why do we stop when it comes to finances? If we want to do taxes, why do we ask our husbands?
We should keep account of how much we spend. We should pay our child’s school fees. That red saree looks so beautiful, but it would be even more special when we buy it with our hard earned money.
Women can do any job but they should always earn. Women should never forget this.
