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

By | April 19, 2017

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…

    Yup, there exists some programmed thoughts. Some prejudices which try to keep her in some predefined shapes.

        See the way I see it, you can’t put leg in two boats at the same time.

        We are all trying first to do it, than in the middle we are saying, o wait it’s not a good idea to do it. So we should all be in one boat or take one boat.

        I hope you get my point

            Yes, but the way our cultures are getting wiped out, we have lost so many values in this process. That can’t be revived in one generation again.

    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

      Thanks a lot for sharing your views. You are right, if there is love and respect, things will become a little more understandable.

    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.

          But you know..education won’t make you sensible people always. Many a times it’s the people around us driving our senses. The earlier we realize it, the better

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
