  • Adding diversity and perspective to a workplace.

    Adding women, who choose to work, to the workforce is a benefit to society as a whole. Women think differently and so will contribute to a versatile environment in which new techniques and styles will be implemented. Men and women complement each other, hence working together will produce results which only men, or only women, may not have been able to produce on their own. This does not imply that men and women who work outside the home are allowed to opt out of their responsibilities at home. If both parties were to give their careers as much importance as maintaining stability within the home, we would have a system which isn't oppressive plus enforces values.

  • Of course women should work

    If a women wants to work, she should be allowed to with out any criticism! Women are hardworking, intelligent, and capable HUMAN BEINGS. And if a women wants to have children and a job, we should be giving her moral instead of trying to shame her. Why is this question even being asked?

  • Why shouldn't they?

    To the people saying that a woman must take care of her children, what about men? It's okay if your dad isn't around but your mom is the 'official' caregiver for you? Just because something used to be true a hundred years ago, it doesn't mean it's right. If a woman wants to put her intelligence to use, then she should have the right to work wherever she wants to, without worrying about the opinions of sexist society members.
    And to people saying they are worried about a woman's safety, men can get robbed too. They can get raped. There are plenty of stories about people of BOTH genders getting into trouble after dark,

  • EVERY Women has not only the right to work but the OPPORTUNITY to make something of themselves!

    Why the hell is it that men think women were designed to raise children and therefore that is all they will every be fit for? All humans have evolved through natural selection to be EXTREMELY GOOD at making babies and keeping the species going because thats how you survive! I'm a WOMAN and seeing as I am ranked in the 98th percentile of the country for INTELLIGENCE that makes me technically more able at any academic profession than all but 2% of the male population! So why should they take the jobs that I have the potential to excel in? Women should not be quelled by their fear that their decisions will not be socially acceptable or think that they should be subservient to their husbands/boyfriends. Who cares what people say! Do what you want to do! Why can't men man up and take care of the children and see what it feels like to be bored out of their minds waiting for the potatoes to boil? If you disagree me with I want to hear your logical arguments! Stop droning on about what God intended and think up a real argument, don't worry I believe in God, but religion should NEVER be used as an excuse to stop people from living their lives.

  • Women are not inferior.

    Women and men are equal. A healthy home can be run by both a man and woman equally. The ENTIRE family can work together on the chores and produce a responsible and efficient future for our society. Women are not inferior and should never be inferior. Women and men have the same chances of getting a job and if a woman gets that job over a man then that shows that women are just as intelligent and confident as men.

  • Still this question..

    Women should work...They are born free,,,,they should ofcourse work..There isn't any question to ask.Every human has the right to work.They like a man can be well educated .And as said in the law they are equal ,so why this question is still persisting...Women have the same capability like men ,so they should work.

  • Is This Even A Serious Question?

    I actually can't believe this is a 50/50 argument and most of the arguments on the side of "no" aren't even using logic to defend their beliefs, they're just using their religious beliefs to justify it. Of course women should be able to pursue a career or interests, why on Earth not?

  • I believe that women should not be prevented from working outside the home.

    Having been raised in a dual-working home, I believe that women should not be prevented from working outside the home if they feel that is their calling. Obviously, if she does not want to work outside the home and there is not a need for more income for the family, she need not work outside the home. However, if, say, a man and woman meet in college, fall in love, and both follow their respective career paths, there is no reason for anyone to prevent the woman from continuing on to the workforce.

  • Yes i support your arguement

    As a girl we should be very proud in our country .I confidently suppourt your arguement because women is also having aright to work and earn their income in case of financial activities .Women always should'nt work inhome but also in offices and also spend their time with their chidren

  • Yes women should work!

    This is because its not on others to decide, women are very responsible and they can do all the work including house and office. At times its up to the women only to take care of the financial dealings of the family and they can do it far more better than a man could ever do. Everyone has a desire to become something and they should have all the freedom they to complete. So yes i support in women being allowed to work

  • Its not possible for woman

    Its not possible for woman to work long-hours and then take care for her home. In a developed its ok but in a country like india were woman have to adjust home and professionals life simultaneously. She has to take care of her husbend, in laws, and children and also she had to do joab which is impossible

  • Women should not work outside the home

    Women should only work if they "want" to and not because they "have" to. Women were not designed to deal with the stress of demanding jobs. Women are designed to be caretakers of the home, have dinner ready, house cleaned, raise children, work out at the gym, volunteer, get involved with church activities, etc. Being at home is a lot more work but God designed women to manage it all with grace. God did not design women to deal with the stress of work deadlines, work goals, bosses, office politics, etc. Plus a lot of affairs start at the workplace.

  • Of course not

    Women should not work outside the home, that is a man's job. Women are meant to stay at home, clean the house, cook, raise the children, and above all; serve men. They should not be working in a position that men are supposed to fill. I don't even leave the house unless my husband allows it.

  • Women don't belong in the workplace unless nurses or teachers.

    Women are not equipped to work outside the home. They should be raising children and tending to the home. Men are supposed to work. That's why we have so many screwed up kids. They don't have a nurturer at home and they go buck wild. Mom needs to be at home. End of story.

  • Women are inferior.

    Women do not have the required skills, strength and intelligence to endure the work life. Those that do are in most cases far less productive than men. So if men are better at working due to their superiority in the afore mentioned fields, then why should they not take that position? It is more efficent if the woman takes on the less demanding job of looking after children and cleaning the house. ON top of this women are emotionally unstable and would be exposed to too many men in their working life, which could lead them astray from their marriage and duty. I hope this helps!

  • Motherhood more valuable.

    Being a FULL TIME wife and mother is the only effective way to be a wife and mother. Being a wife and mother is much more valuable to society in the long run than working outside of the home. Many studies have shown that children raised by a FULL TIME stay-at-home mom are more well adjusted and productive members of society.

  • Women are less happy than before feminism.

    A lot of career women end up on mood-altering pills for their depression, and I think working is a huge part of what contributes to it. They don't get to spend time enough time with their families an if they even try to adjust their schedule a little bit, they are set back at work because they have to constantly compete against their co-workers.

  • Women should not be out at night

    I respect women and value their freedom they have right to freedom (same like men)however at the same time am concerned for their safety at night,keeping in mind the current scenario of the world that's exactly why I'm against women outside at night maximum time for women who are not working is-7to8 o clock and for working women the maximum is 10 o clock as some women have work till late night.

  • Balance is needed

    Society needs balance. A woman going outside to work for money, then coming home and working for free is bound to breed animosity. Paying someone to raise your children while you engage in building a career is fine, if that is your absolute dream, but the fact of the matter is, someone will be left feeling cheated, most often, it's the children. The woman, though many will deny it, will ultimately feel some amount of guilt in essentially abandoning her natural role (whether voluntarily, or due to challenging circumstances) to care for her children in the complete sense. It should also be noted that children thrive more when cared for through full-time parenting. Balance is needed. In a work obsessed, money hungry world, a healthy balance between profession and family is greatly needed to improve the quality of human beings produced for the future.

  • Society needs a balance of roles

    1.A girl doesn't expect her partner in marriage to be 'not manly',for example one who can't shoulder the responsibilities of a man like bringing in income,being lazy,crying or showing stupid sentimentality at the slightest of issues.A man who performs his manly duties is considered to be caring to his wife.Similarly a woman who stays at home looks after the food,children and management of the house's internal affairs is considered to be caring for her husband.
    2.A woman who works in corporate houses may have to spend nights out of home when the husband may need her.The husband may be worried about her intentions.He would feel she doesn't care about him.She isn't fulfilling her primary role as wife to her husband.A man who has to spend time outside cannot be brought under the same argument as men NEED to be EMPLOYED,he cant remain in society UNEMPLOYED whereas women CAN.(Atleast in my Indian society).
    3.If a man brings in good income what need does the woman have to earn?If a woman thinks she has to prove her worth by competing with her husband isn't that hostility towards her husband?What is the use of marriage or coming together if it brings in hostility?
    4.A woman may very well fall into the temptation of doing things against marriage at the request of her male bosses to get promotions at workplace.You may ask me can a man not fall into such temptation?The answer is NO because by my logic women must not be present at workplaces so no female bosses.Why not all female and no male workplace?The answer to that is the rhetorical question 'Would you marry an unemployed man?'Men HAVE to work that's it, women may not.
    5.In Bible God said men have to earn their bread by the sweat of their brow,so if you respect religion...A man MUST work.
    6.My concluding point..If men must work women should have a different role to complement each other.This would create DEPENDENCIES on each other leading to lasting relationships.Without dependencies,independent men and women have great chance of falling out in marriage.

I think woman should not work outside the home because she have already a job. It is motherhood. How can she rganize her her time between working outside the house and motherhood?

It would be nice if woman working at home would get paid for their work
