Time and situations have enhanced the lifestyle of women. Women are exposed more in society. Better opportunities are knocking. Yet women still need to safeguard the family. Mothers are especially essential to the family and still do all the chores. I feel these practices limit the opportunities for women. There are cases of women giving up good careers for the sake of the family. In my perception, it is necessary for both men and women to stand shoulder to shoulder …share their responsibilities within the house and outside. Creating balance in the family is also balancing life.
