Nearly half of all workers today are women. Most people agree that this is positive movement forward in our country.
A few reasons why:
Men and women nowadays have similar goals in life.
We all want kids, a family (most of us), and to make enough money for investments and living a comfortable lifestyle. We all want to be part of our own success and stay healthy.
Marriage is now more important women than it is for women.
The statistics show that men value being married more so than women, in terms of future goals. Some men agree that women can live a fulfilling life without marriage, and more women believe that is so as well. Two-thirds of all women and men say that they are happy in their marriage or partnership.
Women making more money is very widely accepted now.
Most people are comfortable with the notion of women earning the same amount as men these days. Times are changing as men become more liberal and free to this idea, as compared to their fathers who believe that women should not earn as much as a man. This is an old way of thinking that is going out the door.
Who has a better life?
Men still hold the statistic in terms of what other people believe to be true. Men still have higher benefits than women.
Working mothers are much more common and accepted these days.
Women with children are just as committed to their jobs and careers as women without kids.
People still hold on to the traditional notions of family life. In the 1970s, families consisted of a stay at home parent (mother) who would take care of the kids, make sure the house is orderly, and cook. The father or man of the house was be the breadwinner for the family and went to work daily to earn a living for himself and his family. It just isn’t this way anymore.
The truth is, with the demanding, fast-paced lifestyle that everyone has these days (thanks for technology and other innovations), both men and women are wanting help! Especially when it comes to kids and family life.
