Should women end in the kitchen?

As a little boy, I started hearing that the place of the woman was in the kitchen. I don’t hear it much these days as many people think it discriminates against women, and frown at it; but there are still many people who hold uncompromisingly that the place of the woman is in the kitchen; that women are to be seen and not to be heard.

Some actually go beyond mere talking to put an embargo on any attempt by their wives to become career women or get any kind of paid job outside the home.

And it may surprise you if you don’t buy this view, that it’s not the men alone who believe this. Some women agree and say a woman should not get office work for a salary but should stay at home and take care of it and her family.

Of course, evidently, this makes the woman dependent on her husband for all her financial needs with all the humiliation that will definitely go with it.

Have you heard this debate in your community? What is your take on it? Are there disadvantages when a married woman is working in an office outside her home?

  1. I’ve heard the debate and here’s my take. I believe women should be where ever they want to be. If they want to be a Stay at home Mom. Do it. If you want to have a career, you can do that, too. It doesn’t matter what they do society will criticize them.So they should follow their hearts and be at peace with it. 🙂
