"The financial demands on the Indian families are becoming fiercer by day.
The sky rocketing cost of living, increasing expenses on education of
children, increasing cost of housing properties in India force every family
in India to look for ways and means of increasing the household income. As
a result, women in India who were mostly known as homemakers are forced to
go for jobs and take up even careers that were considered only suitable for
men such as working in night shifts in call centers or BPOs. They are left
with no option but to fend for their families in all possible ways.
Working women in India are faced with lot more challenges than their
counterparts in the other parts of the world. In India men do not share on
most of the household chores, it is women who have to cook, clean the
house, do the dishes, wash clothes, get their children ready for school
etc. Men just took care of few chores that are to be dealt outside the
house. So the major burden of running the family is on the shoulders of
women. It was alright for women to handle all the chores as long as they
were homemakers. Now with their increasing need for getting some income for
the family, they have to work all the more harder. They have to take up a 9
to 5 job plus handle all the household chores that they handled as a
homemaker. Men's role has not changed much.
Here researchers (authors of the book) have provided a survey based report
conducted on married women working in teaching profession. Various types
problems faced, by them viz. psycho-social, professional, family related
etc. are collected and discussed. Further an attempt was made to highlight
the reasons behind those problems."
