Women power and liberation are not about slogans and conducting women welfare programs. Much has to be changed about the pattern in the society and corrections made earlier will bring out a better India. Though a father remains the provider in most families it is a mother’s contribution towards the welfare of the family that has to be regarded. Most parts of India still look at a girl child as a distinct responsibility and all efforts are garnered in making her to learn to cook and clean.
Being independent is also to be able to cook and tend for the family but this is pointless for living life if looked upon as mandatory. When a girl child is born there are so many emotions about raising her, dressing her and getting her into a formidable position when the time is right. Most women give up their careers to nurture for their families and hence people feel that education for a girl child is not necessary.
It is highly important not to differentiate between daughters and sons. They are individuals and have every right to education and health plans. Just as a son a daughter too must be independent financially. Independence has to be encouraged with responsibility and it is the duty of the parents to teach them other skills other than education.
Culinary talents have to be learnt and also it is fine to learn to fix a bulb. Right from beginning children should not be given to understand that this is a boy's job or this is not the right thing for a girl to do. Equality is essential when it comes to education, self reliance and also a career choice. Women are ace pilots, astronauts and also hold important positions in the corporate houses.
Multi tasking is second nature to all women. They are mentally more stronger and adapt well to pressures. One must also acknowledge that intellect has to be stimulated for today's women and mundane household chores are just a small part in her life. Though careers are demanding and the choice is purely personal, parents must invest well for the education of daughters. Life can be uncertain and many times it can be important to look for a career or better financial prospects.
