Should Women Work?

There was a time when women were considered to be fragile creatures who could not face difficult situations without fainting. But time has proved society wrong about their belief.

Women had to struggle hard to bridge the gap from their home till the workplace.  I think women should work, and why not?  In fact, it has been found that 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.

Women who work are independent.  This means that they do not have to depend on their parent for financial help – they stand on their own feet.  They are no longer the ‘inferior sex’ nor a burden on her parents who in ancient times sent them off to their in-laws as soon as possible.  Working women also obtain respect and freedom by the society and her parents as well.  She can now lead a full adult life.

Other people still say that women should not work; in other words, a woman’s place is in the home.  True, unwedded girls at home, housewives greatly affect the activities in a house.  They help enormously in doing the household chores including cooking and washing clothes.  Mothers have full time to devote to her children, teaching them the care and protection required.  Indeed, these points are crucial factors in the good development of children – factors that may not be present in women who work.  This is a consequence of the stress due to work and lack of time.

But women benefit more at work than they do when they stay at home.  For example, when long ago, housewives had to bear the insults of their husbands; “You are a burden on me!”, today working women of marital status contribute equally for the family and is treated with due respect.  Money by the working women and men enters the house, bringing more wealth, luxury, comfort and leisure.  All this results in a better standard of living.

The above arguments are therefore justified.  Women should work for equality and to lead a better and more respectful lifestyle.

    i read ur essayabout woman and the work then i feel its woman s essay .i think that ur essay is based on two ideas . the first one is money . i mean that life depends on you is money or happiness can be due to money . the second one is woman should work because men do so . here just to declaire that woman has the right to do everything as man do .

    i only have one thing to say is that when we talk about women we talk about a group i mean we have married and non married women and there is a large difference between them .
    ionly wanna add something that may solve this problem . it s the role of both wife and husband to decide weither should or shouldn t work .
    any way when you are against women s work we only do so for children s future ..
