Thread: My parents dont want me to work as i am a girl

  1. #1

    Angry My parents dont want me to work as i am a girl

    only in a country like India can shows like Balika Vadhu and Na Aana Is Des Laddo do so well!
    yesterday, i told my family that I had been looking for a job and have found a very well paying job close to my house, and they got so angry at me! They are looking for boys for me and I have no problem getting married. but what has that got to do with my working???? I got very upset when my fther came right out and said that in our family at least, girls are not allowed to work. I just left the house angry but I am going to fight with them for being so narrow minded and orthodox!
    why bring me up in a modern society and send me to the best schools and colleges awhen u want me to spend my whole life sitting in a house?!?!

    does anyone want to give me any suggestions on how to tackle my family???

    yeah right. Your parents seem to be living in bygone era. they do not know that a girl has the same right as a boy does. Try to explain them in a clear way that you have dreams and aspirations and there is nothing wrong in following them as long as you are not doing anything wrong. I hope they will understand your point of view.

    try to prove your parents wrong by being there for every need. Prove them that as a girl you are not weak and can accomplish everything that a boy can do. soon they will realize their mistake

    you should explain to your parents rather than rebelling. you can give examples of women achievers. By working, you can be independent. i hope they understand

    I know what you feel. This is frustrating when there are gender inequalities in a society. This is not accepted and it is our voice that can change the way how people around us think and behave.
