This old saying: “A man works from sun to sun but a woman’s work is never done” has not lost its meaning into our modern days.
I know that there are many men out there who also do their fair share in helping to raise the children and by contributing to the household chores like doing laundry, cleaning the bathroom and cooking. However, (yes, there is still a but) this is still a minority, even in our day and age.
However, this is still a minority, even in our day and age.
Men are still, in most families, the main breadwinner and have also the higher income to show. This is enough reason for both genders to not question a man’s lack of contribution to a more female-oriented area, the house.
Why Women still doing more
I can not speak for all women on this planet and take their culture, religion and social status into the equation because I don’t have all the information. What I certainly can do is speak for western raised women (like myself) who should have all the advantages to have a successful career as a man does.
Unfortunately, it isn’t still that simple as it is sold to us. Most western governments have resolutions, laws and even written in their constitutions that women can’t be discriminated by their gender and their role as a woman.
Then why is it still the fact that a woman who wants to be successful has to climb up the career ladder and work for it at least 3x harder than a man?
A man will still take the liberty to come home from work and will be done, time to relax, perhaps helping with one chore around the house but will attend to something more pleasing to him soon thereafter.
I am not bashing against men. I am only pointing out the truth. A woman, when coming home from work will still work. Her work isn’t done. Looking after household chores most of the time by herself.
Cooking and cleaning still will fall into her natural role, after all, she is (still) a woman and can deal with it much better.
I could write down a 24-hour timetable if required but for now, leave it the way it is.
Are there Alternatives for Women to be Successful?
Yes, there are alternatives. When a woman wants to have it both but thinks she has to sacrifice one for the other, meaning having a successful career or being a mother but can’t be or have both.
There is certainly a way to achieve both parts successfully and being satisfactory, by working from home.
Now, I have written already an article about working from home and if you haven’t read it yet, please feel free to read here.
I also wrote a review about a platform called Wealthy Affiliate, which I am proud to be a part of, read here.
I am a woman who not only wants to but need to stay at home by taking care of a loved one. Going out and joining the workforce for hours isn’t an option.
Every woman can do what I do. It is easy and I am happy I have found Wealthy Affiliate.
A woman is a natural born multitasker, there is no doubt in my mind.
Nevertheless, put your best foot forward and jump over the limitations you have given yourself or by your culture, religion, and society. You can do it.
