Time to change!! #ShareTheLoad

 

 

These days we spend so much time on the internet reading, watching, listening and then we come across something so powerful. I hope you took out time to watch the video.

The video talks about the Gender prejudices that still exists in this so called 21st century where women are no less than men in Sports, climbing mountains, reaching space, work & profession. But at our homes things have not changed much it seems.

Why are Moms always supposed to do the kitchen, chores, laundry?

Why should Dad’s go the Banks?

And whats wrong if a girl is not interested to cook but play tennis or say cricket ?

“Gender inequality is not a woman’s issue, it is an Human issue. It affects us all”

If a girl is not not married by 27-28 then people assume that she is rejected but if a guy doesn’t then probably he wants to make his career and earn more money. These stereotypes are very old and common ones, but why is there no end to it?

Because we, I, you and everyone are not changing and going on accepting these stereotypes. But its time to make the change and start it first from our home.

During my school days,more than some 10 years ago, I used to often visit one of my School friend’s house and take a stay at her place as we were close friends. She had a younger brother, a younger sister and an elder brother as well. So they were a total of six in the family. I always saw the girls doing all the chores, running in the kitchen helping their mom, while the guys used to wander about. 10 years later, its not surprising to see those girls doing the things they believe they were only born to.

The more we believe and support such ideas, the more we block our growth. It is important to imbibe these ideas to the young kids right from the beginning so they don’t grow up to such stereotypes believing them to be true and the worst is following them. Things continue to happen when people don’t raise their voice. Spreading awareness is equally important, but we have a chance to diminish it from the roots and that it by starting from our home.

I promise to spread  this wonderful message the video shows and contribute in making a small change which might help the world be a better place.

I am joining the Ariel #ShareTheLoad campaign at BlogAdda and blogging about the prejudice related to household chores being passed on to the next generation. 

Are you??

  1. I was married for almost forty years. My ex never swept, mopped, vacuumed, went grocery shopping, did laundry, helped clear or set the table, or ran the dishwasher. His mama taught him that it was “MY job.” His job was to earn the money. I was supposed to wait on him hand and foot, and never complain. Thankfully, my daughters watched their mama being somebodys’ “beck and call girl” and decided it was not for them.

    It is a disgrace that in the 21st century women have still not managed to achieve equality. And that men have not allowed them to.

    Household chores should be a shared responsibility, else the entire constitution of marriage is in doubt!

    I wrote a Humorous post on this topic long back:
