Does she really a need a degree on her shoulder to prepare homely food?

48 Comments

Why are you complaining on denial of opportunities of education to a girl while more number of girls than boys are seen as faculties in schools and colleges? Oh, it’s a great achievement since she is not only educated but employed also. And yes, teaching is a safe and less hectic job for her, thinking from her parents’ perspectives.

Alas!
Feel pity on these cultured senseless thoughts

Why should a woman be educated while her whole purpose is just to get engaged in house hold stuffs? There are many uneducated women who manage home pretty well. So what’s the need of having a degree on her shoulder to prepare homely food? Is it just an entry pass in the matrimonial websites?

There has been lots of progress in the field of female education. Never forgetting that progress as well as the contributions of brave historic women, let me ask “Does that progress trend really match with the number of employed women in the country right now?”

Or may be woman education is for controlling the population as she won’t get married at an early stage unlike the uneducated women. Pheww…

Today I’m angry…. beyond words. I’m furiously typing this on my phone because I don’t want to waste time by going to my laptop, switching it on, logging in and what not and risk losing my chain of thoughts… or my anger.

I’m angry at every parent who dares to show their girl-child that she can dream of real equality. I am angry at every son who thinks that he deserves an educated woman who will quit her aspirations and ambitions just to make him ‘ghar ka khana‘ (home-made food). I’m angry at every girl who listens to such dimwits.

I’ll tell you the source of this anger…

I got off a phone call from a friend who told me she had left her well paying job as a Software Engineer only to reprise the role of a homemaker,becauseno one in her husband’s family supported her work

  1. It upsets me so much that this prejudice towards women is still so prevalent in major parts of the world —today in 2017! I currently work as an Engineer in a male dominated industry, there are five women in my Department including myself, and we are the only five persons in the entire Department to possess a Masters degree. Our department is managed by a woman and I salute her. I salute all the women in here, and around the world who are educated, working women and balances their family, household and career. Women all over the world needs to be given the opportunity to be more than just being a homemaker and stop getting deprived of their ability to be a superwomen who can do it all.

  3. Like the husband, the wife also needs support. As long as it’s not a matter of mutual respect and understanding, this thing will never stop.

  6. A good point.
    I am a housewife and have found eays to work at home. I respect and don’t mind other women who chose to work because of poverty or personal reasons.
    A husband needs the support of a wife in managing the house( if she has managerial ecpertise, the house would run well), in teaching the kids (well, if a woman is highly intellectual that would be a great plus for the kids), raising kids with proper character, etc…as long as the wife does not neglect any of her tasks while working, I think that’s ok.

    But when the kids start to long for motherly time, when the house becomes chaotic, when the tired husband does all the chores when he gets home, when the woman starts to complain of many things.. then working isn’t worth it at all.

    It is really sad that being a housewife which should be normal has been hashtagged as ‘super’ because many women chose to work instead of stay at home. 😊 I think when we start embracing womanhood and all the contribution women can give to the husband and family, and the impact it gives to our kids and the geeration after them, we’ll little by little appreciate being a homemaker. (Don’t get me wrong on not desiring to work at all. It gets to me at times, but at this point, my toddlers need all the care in this foundation years. ) all the best! 😊

    • Hi gilian, I can totally understand your words being in the same shoes. It’s up to a girl to prioritize things in her life. No one has to the right to judge her. But my point is, she should be fully aware of her stand and should own her decisions and must be guilt free. Nowadays, she is too much influenced by the people around her. They say why this girl is working keeping her toddler in a daycare or so and the same people will say when she quit job why did she resign while her financial support was essential for the family.

  7. Thank you for sharing – it’s interesting to learn of different cultures. I’m an architect, a woman, a wife, a mother, a daughter. There are many times when I would love to do more, especially for my family. I can do lots of things, just not all at the same time.

  8. Thanks for sharing Akhila and so agree with your words. Our society does not allow the girl child to progress and be independent only male child can do all these things. Our Indian society is too male dominant.

  9. I wish the friend she talked about showed as much anger or rebellion. Just a thought, though. If she has accepted it and wants to go ahead with it are we right to judge her for her choice?

    • You are right varsha.. We can’t judge their choices if they are fully aware. But the point is sometimes she is just unaware and going in that flow. How sad in that case

      • She’s a well-educated girl. Many a times it is the people around us who want us to make a career or continue our current one when we aren’t exactly motivated ourselves. It is both a good and bad thing.

  10. I can picture you typing frantically on your phone – Good message that needs to be out there. Women have every right to choose a career as a man does, and hers or even his career should not come in to the question of marriage – i thought the only things that mattered there was love and respect

    One day, we will have women’s equality, but there are still some idiots that think women should fit into a certain mold.
    Thank you!
