We know very well that the role of women is very important in all generations. In the very old days, women took a lead role in the society. After that, gradually women were kept in houses with the remarks that they are fit for household works only and men only can take care of worldly affairs. Now, women started to realise their capability.
Women’s role has changed at an accelerating rate. Now, women have entered in all the tough fields, equal to men. Women’s impact is due to the fact that they are getting educated sincerely. The women’s rights movement is a good example of how women have come across very strongly, fighting for their political, social and economical status.
In our grandmother period, women were getting married at young age and the married women are not allowed to study in school or college. Next, in our mother period, women got the opportunity to study in school and some had the chance to study in college also. Some women worked as teachers, nurses and in Government offices. In our generation, women were allowed to study in Engineering and medical colleges. Some more professions are allotted to women. The next generation has come and sky is the limit for them. They can do anything and everything they like.
The gender myth of old where men work and do the hard labour or women stay at home and raise children is becoming a thing of the past. Women have entered in all fields and proved they are fit for all works. The world is changing everyday, every minute, and even every second. Significant generational differences occurred on attitude items relating to sharing of child care, parent care, and household tasks by men and women. Men of present generation are willing to accept this change.
So, even if the role of women in the society has changed in generations, they didnot forget their duty. They discharge it efficiently and smartly. Let us congratulate all women for their duty-consciousness.
