Dear policy-maker, dear politician,
I am a woman and a mother. And I have a lot to tell you about
I have worked during many years outside home and now I devote myself 100% to my family. Since I started working I felt that the entry of women to the workforce followed a masculine pattern and that has just brought more difficulties and problems to us women, to society and families as well. Let me explain myself:
SE PUOI.... AIUTACI:
– When I started to work outside home, I wanted to develop my work as woman, contributing with my feminine being and unique features for adding them to the male ones from the men whom I worked with, but my perception was that what they expected from me was to be completely the “same as men”, underestimating my femininity as a distinctive input on regard of men, everyone cast in the same mould, losing half of my potential!!!
– And when I became mother, I had hard times at my workplace to tell I was pregnant, or any other thing related to my pregnancy or kids (by the way, I was the only one from all the company who didn’t get a permanent contract because I requested a reduction in my working hours). It doesn’t make sense that we have to be acting as if our children were invisible or pretending that we don’t have kids at all, when motherhood gives us huge potential and high skills, which are pure gold for our career’s development and progress.
And the thing is, let’s be honest, that women in Western societies are discriminated against, not so much for being a woman, but for being a mother.
But I don’t see this issue very complicated, we only need to remake the framework and adapt the labour market to reality, I mean, to human nature and to life itself.
Take into account that society needs self-confident and happy children, with an adequate family environment. These are the reasons why mothers are the cornerstone, and that is the way it is.
