“Women at work” was considered a basic phrase for women who were at work while in the home. Decades ago, women were entirely meant to stay at home working, and the working meant taking care of the household chores, husband, family, children, and in-laws. This has been the scenario for the past many years until there was a revolution in every heart of a woman. In this gender-biased community, women were barely allowed to work and even if they did, they had to face severe criticism from the society, workplace and including their families.
With the advent of computers and internet, the lives of women started witnessing a transition. Gradually, there was a significant development in the society with an increase in the literacy rate of women and employment. Eventually, women became capable of leading and working equally with men in every field. The society, however, was not fully convinced to let women lead though, as the gender discrimination was clinching in every inch of the world. Despite the challenges, few women have made their way to the top standing as an example to other women to follow their dreams. “The world is a place for both men and women and not just men alone”, they convey.
