Working Women in Bangladesh
It is noticed with pleasure that nowadays the women of our society
are becoming working women. They are no more dependent on men. Their
role is changing gradually. They are no more only mothers and
home-makers. They have come out of their houses. They are not timid.
They are participating in both official and unofficial work. They arc
contributing to the national uplift. They are participating in armed
forces and trying whole heartedly to serve the nation. They can conduct
business. They arc earning money and sharing with man all the family
responsibilities. So, their contribution is no more negligible. But the
women who arc engaged in service cannot look after their family well.
They cannot take care of their children properly. Their children are
deprived of mother love and affection. In many families, girls are still
confined in household duties. Their parents think that one day the girl
will become a housewife in a house, they think that they arc not fit
for doing work in an office or somewhere else. They are born to do
household chores as cooking washing up feeding babies and managing the
household. Here the female domestic workers are treated brutally. Women
generally work longer hours than men but they arc getting less money.
This kind of partial treatment should be stopped. Whatever may be the
circumstances, the women should be encouraged so that they can take part
in total development of the family as well as the country.
