Women can do everything that men can, and they even do it better. They also can do many things that men cannot. But there is a fact that their work is not appreciated as men's although they have to sacrifice a lot for their family and career.
So someone said, "A woman's place is in the home."
Do you agree or disagree? What do you think? Give your opinion.
You should write at least 250 words.
There is no doubt that woman are contributing equally like men in economic development of a country. Their rights are more realized now than they used to be in ancient times. Societies recognizing efforts of men at work over working woman is a common trend irrespective of their hard work and the sacrifice they make in their family and profession. Most people believe that they are more suited to home than at work. This essay will analyze the position of working women in society in the light of abilities, cultural norms and religious values.
Firstly, Men are better adapted genetically to perform physical work, such as operating heavy machinery, cargo loading, digging etc. Woman in such domains are not suited due to their structure and nature. For instance sports, where competitions are primarily categorized on the basis of gender. It is the structure of women that mark the boundaries of what men can do and women cannot. On the other hand, women in nursing, elementary education and customer care services are preferred over men. This is because of their abilities to be patient, devotion, care and pliability.
However, it has been argued that women are less esteemed in society due to their traditional roles at home. For instance in middle-east, where cultural and religious values demand women to stay back home and devote their time in raising children and fulfilling their household responsibilities.
To conclude, difference do exists and are largely due to nature. Women place in house or at work is largely governed by culture, tradition and religious value and not by their abilities.
