When we divide the gender roles, work life creates a complete different pressure for men , women and neutral genders respectively. While men are trained to be the bread earners and women are seasoned to believe that household is naturally their responsibility. Bringing the discussion to working environments/ offices, career is laregly impacted by the gender roles forced on you.
Productivity, growth and performance is not fully entitled on the basis of one’s real worth instead it is polluted by the seeds of wrong beliefs taught in the childhood which grows into burning down a firing soul from performing.
Why are women are expected to be employees , not leaders ? Creation of a women leader is a special story to tell , that is the irony. We are not used to being lead by women ; neither at homes nor at work place.
Fathers are not allocated paid paternal leave in majority of the industries. A child grows up looking at his mother sacrifice her career in most of the cases. Setting right examples for children is important. In this case corporates needs to think for the long term benefits.
Office work is not the only work delivered by women. Constant responsibilty of home for lifetime comes without holidays and perks. Developing nations have a long way to go when it comes to defining gender roles.
Apparently women are tagged as bossy, over ambitious, bad mothers, careless wives, slutty for going out of their way and out performing in their passion and career.
Men are forced into the cycle of competing for a betterment. Well that is a lot ofpressure to carry. This compulsion over him is creating an imbalance in acceptance of women leadership.
Women don’t negotiate competent salaries because they compromise it to getting a job itself in the first place. Various factors are like family approval, safety, under playing negotiation skills put the women on the inferior end. Hence, accepting a low pay is also a key reason for the pay gap between genders.
Girls are dreaming about breaking the stereotypes. When will they start dreaming for leadership ?
WE ALL ARE EQUAL...
DIFFERENCES WE EXPIRIENCE ARE CREATED BY SOMEONE ELSE… EVERYBODY HAS THE SAME POWER AS YOU...
YOUR STORY MUST BE WRITTEN BY YOU…
DON’T GIVE ANYBODY THE POWER TO FEEL THAT THEY CAN TELL YOU WHAT YOU ARE CAPABLE OF.
