Stop Assuming That A Working Woman Doesn’t Care For Her Family As Much As A Homemaker!

It is so wrong to assume that a working woman "does not care for her family"! THis is a wrong notion spread by those who want women to stay home.

So I recently saw Made in Heaven (both the seasons) on Prime Video and I am really happy to witness the topics that are being touched upon with respect to society and women specially. Though it’s just a screen drama, it truly depicts the sick mentality of Indian society.

One of the topics that I related the most is, “Working women don’t care about family, they are very selfish”. I am really glad about this issue was taken up. There have always been a lot of talk with respect to working women.

Today I want to stress on the fact that a working woman equally loves and cares for a family like a housewife.

The undervalued importance of financial independence for women

We all, especially me, understand the value of my family but I also understand the importance of being independent. I also heard so many times that women who earn more have more arrogance but I guess it is all about mindset.

For example, my husband and I recently met a well known food blogger Priyanka Sharma owing to winning a giveaway, and trust me she was as humble as any one of us. She has almost 2 lakh plus subscribers and it was not evident in her conversations. On the other hand I have come across people who have nothing except arrogance to speak for them. 

Why is a working woman always judged?

Why is a working man always considered hardworking and a working woman is considered selfish? Men and women are both capable of fulfilling their dreams and then why does society create a difference? If a man earns for his family, a woman also earns for her family. She cares for her family, her children and does everything for them only. 

I written in one of my earlier posts here that a woman works not just for money but also for her dreams and passion. For instance, I love working as it keeps both my mind and body active. 

Honestly, I believe the struggle of a woman is never-ending in some or the other way. It doesn’t matter how many movies, series, documentaries and dramas are released, the core thinking of Indian society with respect to women can never be changed.
