Are women more desperate to prove themselves? It was seen that women find it harder to negotiate their salaries as compared to men! The questions raised were, are women less confident, or are men better negotiators?
Are women more desperate to prove themselves? Here are my thoughts!
I read two separate articles published by two leading magazines that had some statistics that got me thinking!
The first article stated that— it was statistically seen that women find it harder to negotiate their salaries as compared to men!
The questions raised were — are women less confident, or are men better negotiators?
In the second article I read, where the following statistics were presented.
Of course, there were many more hard facts stated, but let’s stick to the ones stated above for the sake of this debate today!
Why do women find it difficult to negotiate their salaries? Why are women not able to get leadership positions in organizations? Why are women working harder to take care of their homes as well as trying to be their best in offices and yet not able to ask their worth!
Are they scared that they may be considered inferior! Is it a lack of confidence in them!
Women are far better negotiators than men, and I am sure we have each seen them haggle till they get every penny’s worth when they manage their homes!
And yet, these same women shy away from negotiating for their much deserved salaries at work!
They hold on to their jobs like dear life — willing to compromise and settle for less! Since women are desperate to prove it to themselves and to the men that they are capable and can earn a living for themselves!
That they— the women, are not dependent on their men for money.
And so that men don’t play their money trump cards on their women— to prove to them that women are inferior and/or dependent on men— and due to which men are entitled to play power games on women!
Think about it hard!

Years of experience as assistant costume designer followed, which eventually led her to getting a break.
A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
