Now a days women are well educated and they can do any sort of jobs.They are a graet resource for the nation .It should be utilized in a proper way.If men wish,they can do household work as effectively as the women.They can bring up children.They can show love and affection.As for physical work is concerned,i agree to some extent.But nowadays mental work work is more important than physical work.
Women is made not only for cooking,doing all households works and giving birth to children.But also to fulfill their ambition.She has right to work outside the house.She has all rights as men as.She has right to lead her life in her own way.In olden days,women are treated as slaves.They have no right to educate.They were of the opinion that women are made only for doing household works.But the time has changed now,all women has right to educate.They are treated equally as men.They have a place in all activities.They have spirit to work.So,they have right work at offices etc as men. "DON'T TREAT WOMEN AS CHEAP SHE CAN DO ANYTHING."
I'm going to start and say, the opposing arguements sound like they were written in the fifties. The household in the fifties and the household now are very, VERY different from what it was. Time have evolved and now women have started to gain a momentum in privileged countries. Contrary to the opposition, some women don't, or can't, have kids! Wow! And, surprisingly, women have been getting educated! New concept, huh? The nature and expenses of a household have changed. Things aren't cheap, and that means men and women have to bring home the bacon, not just one.
To add to this, there are also a large amount of lesbian couples and households in the world, believe it or not. The fact that people even disagree with women's freedom is scary, because, believe it or not, the actually only difference between men and women are our reproductive systems(and boobs.)! Women and Men are capable of the exact same thing, and, by saying that women shouldn't work outside the household, you are stopping the world from progressing. Your daughter could figure out the cure for cancer, or that woman you yelled at to 'get back in the kitchen' could have invented a machine that could revolutionize the world. You're suggesting that we make women house slaves, a very 50's view point. This 2013, folks, the times have changed. (Women can show their ankles too!) And you're doing nothing to help the world move forward. We've got enough on our plate to exclude our ladies, lets focus on moving forward, not taking a step back.
Every human has right to live of their own but women is ignored in this society .Women should work because they too will have some goals in their life.Women should be independent they should not be overpowered by someone what i feel women must be given good education in the society equally with man .Women are gods gift.So treat women good eone.
Women should show their abilities in working field.She is not the one who should only sit at home,give birth to babies,take care of her family and all.And working women's salary will increase economic facilities inside home.She will also have a desire or ambition to become something.So we should support her.
Women have all their right to show their abilities in the working world. Not only highly educated but even women, who have mere high school education can also show their talent in other fields like fashion designing, interior designing, cooking, etc.. If women wish they can make a world and if they wish or desire they can also demolish the world ( taking in positive sense or manner ), they can have the greatest contribution towards economic developments in our respective nations.
I am childless by choice. I've got no harsh words for women who are drawn to parenting and dedicating the entirety of their lives to raising well adjusted loved children.
However, the question of whether or not women "should" work outside the home presumes that women's primary role is to do what needs to be done in the home. Housekeeping isn't enough to make that job worth doing. Kids are. How many women are having kids because they're supposed to want them and want to raise them? Way too many, by the looks of the kids I see in the world. The misconception that women should not work outside the home means more kids are born, less valued, to women who need purpose in their lives. I've got news for you, folks. There's plenty of purpose to be had in the work world, and beyond.
Women have different ambitions now, we want to work because self realisation is not concerned only with family anymore, but also with self inclinations and talents...Family is a matter that concerns also our husbands or lovers...Work is what make us a complete human being, and humans are not made by only men but also women...
We're all humans, why should there be any difference between what women should do and what men should do? The differences between the both sexes that we think exist are only social and not in any way congenital, well except the fact that men have bigger muscles. But I still think that there's nothing that a women "should" do, a women should do what THEY want and not what everyone else think is proper. But I most certainly don't think that women should stay at home because someone else thinks that they should.
The very premise of this argument is very offensive, to suggest that there should/could even be any debate over the issue is pretty horrifying, moreover the fact that 26% of people voted no is very very scary. To suggest that women shouldn't be able to work outside the home is to say that women somehow shouldn't be granted rights equal to their male counterparts.
I believe cleaning, cooking, and other house chores are not a woman's natural duty. She wasn't created to be a servant or to be left to rot at home. These chores are all the house inhabitants duty, including the children and the husband, any one who is capable and can move. Chores should be divided among everyone according to their abilities to teach responsibility and new life skills so that they can take care of themselves and respect their house.
A woman should be free to chose whither she wants to pursue a career or a higher education as she pleases, she should engage in social activities like anyone as well, not to be locked inside of four walls to serve and all of her time is devoted to her kids and husband. Raising kids and doing house chores are shared responsibilities between the spouses not one party and excluding the other.. A healthy house requires that!
Many women are sick and tired of medieval perceptions that drive them to adopt a traditional lifestyle. What happens when they get a divorce and their husbands have all the money? It is time to STOP taking the bible literally- i still cannot believe that in a 21st century society some actually intelligent people still perceive the bible as REAL and even literal! Newsflash people...The bible is a metaphor and the actions that took place within it have not been proven to occur, as scientific hypotheses have. So please, next time you want to take the bible SO literally just think. What makes women inferior? Nothing. You can tackle it from the opposite point of view. What makes men superior? A couple extra inches- in some cases 3 or 4? Most definitely not. Grow up, accept that women and men are equal and start living in the 21st century, people.
It's not like it's IMPOSSIBLE for a woman to work and take care of the house and things of that matter... But then there are woman like me, because for some reason, i always burn food, and i suck at cleaning so... I do better and less damage at work anyway.
Regardless of the gender, everyone should have the ability to chose what the want to do in life, not just the males. A lot of people have this idea and stereotype that women have to stay at home and clean, cook and take care of children while the man makes the money. This it not the case. We are not living in the 1800's people. Of course if the woman wants to choose to take this path in life, by all means she can, but we as a society shouldn't expect any gender to have a certain role.
The days when marriage and children were the main aims of women are long gone. More women than ever are now getting university degrees and advancing to high level positions. Having children is not a necessity - so why shouldn't women work outside of the home? A man would be just a suited to the "househusband" role as a women would be suited to the "housewife" role. Why is gender relevant?
In my opinion I think that both men and women should pursue a career because what is the point of getting an education if you just grow up to be working at home constantly. Furthermore say that only the man of the house is working then there might not be enough income to support the whole family especially if there is a big family. Everyone should have the right to work outside their home regardless of their sex.
I feel women must work outside as it will give them a sense of self confidence & self respect. It will remove the gender disparities and change the mindset of the society. Its the right to all women across the world. They must have a chance to prove themselves and compete with men.
Take a look at Proverbs Ch 31. In it, it praises a woman who has her own money and her own outside job.
She owns her own real estate, She works the land growing things. She harvests the results.
She makes her own merchandise and sells it at the market as a merchant with her own stall.
If the Bible was written to keep women home. This would NOT have made it in it.
Men alone cannot support the family wealth as money consumption increases each day. Women now have to take a step of faith and start doing what men do, WORK! Child welfare can be taken care by babysitters nowadays. Parents no longer have to worry much about their child home. Parents now can put away their worries and work for money and support the family financially.
Women have all the rights to be be treated the same way men are and also earn the same as a man does. After all she does not only the regular household work but also is educated enough to support her family. It is time for society to change .
I am a only daughter of my parents. They could go for a boy but no they have decided that they will take care of their daughter like son. Stillthey call me "beta". So why can't i share my father's responsibilities. Why i have to depend on other's son when i am there.
Women have the right to work outside and to feel independent. They should be able to earn their own money and to support themselves without the need of anybody else. Women have a significant role in the society and they should feel this and be respected for it and not be denied for it.
Women had to struggle hard to bridge the gap from their home till the workplace. There is a higher percentage of intelligent women compared to men – which is a clear proof that women can achieve any position in work, even in politics or in other fields.
Working women pose a problem to their families an educated women should be able, with wisdom and intelligence to achieve a balance between her career and family, thereby fulfilling her duties to herself and the world.
Should women work is a silly question. What about single women? Should they work, or should they stay at home and expect their fathers to take care of them? What about single women with children? Should they work, or should the government take care of them, or their families, or just take away the kids into an orphanage, so that they are single? What your are asking is this: Should married women with husbands work? The truth of the matter is that as long as the wives are making the clothes, canning, working the home garden, plucking the chickens, gathering the eggs, cooking the bread, shucking the beans, washing the diapers in the creek, making soap, washing the dishes by hand, washing the clothes by hand, milking the cows, fetching the wood. Drawing the water from the well, washing the children, planing the rice, and the tomatoes, wash the floors, walls, sweep, mop, make candles, spin the wool, and the thread, then they should stay at home and work at home to contribute to the family welfare. If they don't have to perform these chores in the home, then they should be performed outside the home.
Are we living in the fifties? This shouldn't even be a question this day in age. First of all, it is wrong to assume every woman wants children or even needs children for that matter. It isn't their duty to give the world another human. Secondly, it is every individual's right to have a position in the work force if they so desire. My mother worked hard, harder than some men we knew. She was business savvy and provided for my family along with my father. I was in daycare, which I can say taught me and the others who attended so much more than even the most devoted parent. Women should not be confined to such stereotypical roles, as men should not either. That would be a society chained to lives that did not suit them, that did not fulfill their dreams. Women are allowed to have and pursue dreams outside of the home.
“You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation,” it clearly states the importance of woman in today’s world.
As of today women are found to be working in all fields and they are distinguishing themselves in those fields. For the middle class families, choosing a career for women has also become necessary. If they are duly qualified, they do want to be using their talents to seek an employment and be a support earner to their husbands. There is the social scenario that has also necessitated it.
We should all be given equal rights or at least the opportunity. We dot want the job easily just a chance for equality. Its time for a change, men have always had it easy we DEMAND the same. And man should move aside.
ITS ABOUT TIME FOR CHANGE TO HAPPEN
Faith has nothing to do with this argument. Women work just as effectively as men and are equally as able to raise children when in the home. Just going to put some radical ideas forward for the misogynists on the other side: First and foremost, men can raise children just as well as a woman, a child's development will not suffer if a man has a hand in raising it. How about sharing childcare so you can both work?! Secondly, many women do not want children, a career and social life is far more rewarding for many. Crazy I know, surely women only function to give birth and reproduce? Well let me be the first to open your eyes to the reality of intelligent, autonomous women. Use the knowledge wisely.
On a more serious note, I personally find it absolutely abhorrent that this question is still being asked in this day and age. Wake up people!
When they go out to work they can supplement their family income. They should contribute something to the nation and become useful members of the society otherwise it is a waste of human resources. They have proved themselves in all the fields and they can achieve any position. Therefore the society should understand and treat them well.
There are several reasons for this to be said: for one it is in our constitutional rights that women should be treated as equals among men. There is enough evidence over time that has proven that women work harder than men in most workplaces. They have more to prove, and in this day and age women are more prominent than men anyways, so they should be able to do what men do and more.
Today women account for more than 50% of college graduates in the United States. That means that most of us are qualified to do more than clean the house, cook dinner, take care of the children(not that this is bad) and take care of our husbands. The idea that a man is to be the breadwinner for the family is ancient and the concept that a woman should not work outside the home is circumstantial. If you're a single mom with bills to pay and you have to put food on the table, are you going to sit by and be like "Women shouldn't work outside the home, so I'm just going to let this kid starve, we're just not going to have any electricity..."?
So to all you chauvinists out there, get your mind out of the 1960s. It's the 21st century. Women are in some of the most esteemed positions and we are moving up steadily. Why would you want to take us back more than forty years?
In our country India, many villages do not allow girls to study. If they do not study they can not go to work also. Women(mother) who is the main person of the family and not like that men(father) is not important. And now a days all women are starting to go to the jobs..............
Women just as much as men have the right to go to work, why shouldn't they. Seeing to the fact that they are capable of getting the job done, and are sometimes even more qualified than a man for a job, but sadly to this day gender is a factor that plays a great deal in determining weather you get a job or not, according to the World Bank.
'Yes Women, as with men, should have every right and opportunity to work outside the home. It should be up to the family unit to decide how to best provide for the family and support the household. Each individual, regardless of their sex, should have the opportunity to utilize their abilities in a lawful way to contribute to society and to fulfill their goals and ambitions.'
Divorce is rampant, and it's hardly because women work outside the home... On the contrary women often fear not working outside the home because if divorce DOES happen and she ends up as a single mom, she's pretty much guaranteed a one way ticket into poverty and stigmatization. Women work because it's what's best for a worse case scenario, sort of like you have health insurance in case you need it.
If women don't work they just stay at home and look after the baby, so all money which their men earn will be kept for themselves. So if we want to buy something we have to ask permission from them. Why do we have to depend on men? Why don't we have jobs and make money for ourselves?
Women should absolutely work outside of the home just as much as men do. Especially if there are children old enough to be watched in the family. Men need as much time with their kids as women do, so I don't believe it should be solely women being at home and not working. Women have just as much potential.
Why shouldn't women work outside the home? Especially in this economy, most women have no choice but to work outside of the home. Not to mention, why should women have to depend on the man for the money? What if things aren't going well, should a woman have to feel trapped because she can't support herself? Women should work outside the home if they chose to.
Women, as with men, should have every right and opportunity to work outside the home. It should be up to the family unit to decide how to best provide for the family and support the household. Each individual, regardless of their sex, should have the opportunity to utilize their abilities in a lawful way to contribute to society and to fulfill their goals and ambitions.
Women should work outside of the home if it is their choice to do so. Obviously, most women do not have a choice about whether or not to work outside the home; either they work or they do not eat. For the woman who has a choice, working outside the home can bring a sense of fulfillment and accomplishment. Most importantly, working outside the home will allow a woman to earn her own money, and to establish an account that belongs to no one but her.
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.
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, 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.
I reckon it's a God-given duty or let's call it, God-given responsibility to the women, they have not been created for working inside the house, like washing the dishes, or cooking, that's not their duty, but if they do so, that would be their favor to the family! And others (father, children) should be thankful.
Meanwhile, a good mother, a good spouse should be a good manager in the house! Because of their abilities! They are instinctively more emotional than men.
Long Story Short, sometimes they have to work outside, and that is when they cannot afford life, as in the case of a widow, and again another question would pop out in our mind,and that is " which job is suitable for them?" "Can they work as hard as a man?"
Thank you indeed for you reading
As a 25-year-old woman who works outside the home, I do not have reproductive freedom.
I'm not free to have children when I'm physically in prime condition, I'm not free to have as many as my partner and I would like, and I'm not free to nurture them when they're at a young age.
I am subjected to the following disadvantages:
1. Pressure to get established via college/career before pregnancy - hence putting off pregnancy to a later age, which is more dangerous for the baby and myself.
2. Pressure to work throughout pregnancy, increasing my chances of miscarriage and making me miserable with morning sickness and other stressors in a workplace setting. (I'm also a burden to my team!)
3. Pressure to get back to work as soon as possible after birth so that I don't lose my edge - this means I can't spend time with my baby and makes breastfeeding EXTREMELY difficult. (Again, my team suffers because of my taking maternity leave, baby's doctor appointments, etc.)
4. Pressure to only have one baby even if I want more - here in Korea where I live, most women only have one baby because it's so hard to re-enter the workforce otherwise.
It's easy for men to say, "You are FREE to pursue your dreams if you work outside the home!" Maybe to men, financial freedom is everything, but to me, control over my own body, health, and family life is real freedom! If I trust a man enough to have children with him, what's wrong with being temporarily financially dependent on him?
It's easy for men to say, "You have a CHOICE about whether you work outside the home!" When the majority of women work outside the home, it makes it very difficult for the rest of us to get by just on our partner's salary. That is how I have chosen to live now, but it's not easy.
By the time we say woman shouldn't work, we don't mean they should say home with nothing. They already their work, they have many responsibilities to do such as taking care of her children, cooking the food, clothing, doing the chores so on and so forth. So why do they?
Whether you chose to have a baby or it happened accidentally, a mother should dedicate the majority of her time to raising her child. God gave women the ability to carry a child because women are nurturing and parenting comes naturally. Motherhood is a job; a full time job at that. I don't know how any woman could want to be away from their child for long periods of time. When you bring a child into this world, that child is your responsibility. As a mother, I know for a fact, that because I have stayed home with my child, she has hit her milestones way before the majority of babies her age. She is the happiest and healthiest baby I've ever known.
Simply my opinion, there are likely long term societal benefits to having a parent raise their children. This clearly is not a one size fits all statement, individuals situations will vary. I think the women's movement was great in allowing women the freedom to be able to enter the workforce, but that doesn't mean it should be the default option. I'd like it if women working was the exception, not the rule. Women stepped up during WWII to fill in jobs when the men went off to war. In today's times, I think women can again make a stand and decide to not enter the workforce in lieu of raising their children. What would the unemployment rate be if that happened? How fewer juvenile problems would there be if that happened?
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.
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.
How is this country suppose to get better when women are working. Im a woman and i think women should stay home and be giving. This would be a good foundation. There would also be less fighting, because you would stop the possible arguments of who cleans what, who makes dineer, who buys the gifts, who takes card of children, and who has a final decision. Women should have a say, but lets face it, men want to feel strong and manly. Having a woman who takes that away just damages their manly pride and makes them feel insecure.
Because women are to be supported and safeguarded and not to go outside and work and earn money.....Since long back in the great indian culture,its said that men goes out and earns livelihood for family and women is the domestic head,men now trying to change this natural rule and the results are what we are seeing in indian society..Crime against women and all are increasing....
Women can't work and here husband is not with here because that will be dangers and the men will not accept this situation that his life is working with another men for ex ;also.Children needs there mam. The house should be cleaned every thay that men geare in the house
Only if there is a financial need women should work else the family life fails and children are lost in the battle of equality and sharing of work. Nobody should force a wonderful home MANAGER to work, it stresses her unnecessarily making he feel as though all the effort of managing the house, the kids their education etc etc. Is a waste and is a waste of time.Never should you make a woman feel that unless she works leaving behind her family waiting for her forever she is worthless.Dedication is very important for a peaceful life else divorce is the only solution if you are selfish....
The reason that industrialized countries doesn't produce the same amount of children is that women aren't home making babies, but instead at work, where the men should be. It's only natural that men should provide, while women should get the home cleaned and the children taken care of. O o
Women should only work if they have to. Not if are greedy for more money. Why change society. It's been fine for hundreds of years. With women trying to be identical to man is killing chivalry. Why would a man equal to a women want to woo her. Women who pursue careers instead of a family are wronging themselves. Now if the job is required to support the family. That is allowed. But a career for self fulfillment makes no sense, it's just money. You husband should provide that. If he doesn't then you should have married him. Now going off of fulfillment. Go volunteer or spend time with your friends. Allow yourself the be spoiled.
The women-should-work-outside-home argument seems to ignore the huge contribution women have been making to society and the nation as the pillars of a good, stable family, which is what brings forth noble, upright, strong citizens; if the family is torn up, nothing good comes from it; women working harsh competitive jobs certainly add nothing to the family, and are breaking up the family, the basic building block of society. Men and women are equal, but that does not make them identical; each has his or her own equally important, different duty to perform.
If I tried to everything that feminists expect me to do, I would be stressed and depressed. I know some of you want that and you call it names like 'freedom' and 'empowerment', but I see it as just more expectations piled on my desk that cuts into my free time. There is more to life than racing to the grave. Haven't you ever wanted to pursue a hobby for personal development?
Try doing that while studying, working, wile raising children to feel unentitled and competitive so that they can get a job (any job, you don't care, just work and complain until you get too old then kill yourself so you wont be a financial burden to your children). Where is the time for happiness?
One income used to be enough to support a family. Now things have changed, income is proportionally less than it was in the past, and things harder to afford with one income. Women are tricked into thinking they want to work when really they have to because the man doesn't make enough.
Competition with women makes it harder to men to find jobs too.
I would encourage both men and women to pursue higher education and a career... Assuming your intent is not to raise a family. There may even be cases where you may still HAVE to work, while married with children, it can be tight on a single income.
My Wife & I made the decision 8 years ago to stick to a single income and it's been among the best decisions we ever made together. Where I work; however, I see mom's working in high paying positions ALL the time, which I find troubling. I absolutely cannot presume to know everyone's personal situation, but am confident they still aren't truly "happy." The old adage is true, "money doesn't buy happiness, " but these corporate mom's still hang on (quite competitively I might add) to this idea that a well padded, six-figured household income might actually work--and it's justified with all of the high end day care, private school, travel sport, and seasonal family retreats to exotic islands around the world to have to support. Women!! The reason you're still not truly happy is that you're missing out on the biggest blessing you'll receive on this side of Heaven (I'm assuming you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ with that statement)--your children and Husband.
No matter how much money you make, no matter how high you climb on the corporate ladder, no luxury car, country club membership and other self centered pursuits you chase, they can never compare to the joy and fulfillment of being with and investing in your children--trust me, they NEED you. This doesn't exclude Father's either, you have just as important of a role with your children--they'll never remember (nor care) how much money you made if you're never home, spending time with them.
Now you probably believe you're the exception, you are SUPER MOM! You can do both, you've got tons of energy. I want to be as encouraging as possible here, but the fact of the matter is that the growing sense of urgency, desperation, and subtle yet steady breakdown of moral values and decay in Western society is due to mom's and dad's that are too focused on careers, too focused on themselves and their own selfish pursuits than to focus on what God has created and commissioned us to do and to serve as Godly examples to their children.
