In this modern era, women work side by side with men. There are many reasons why women go out and seek livelihood. Where working outside their homes help them in becoming independent and economically stable, at the same time, their job or business also put few challenges in front of them. They have to face certain challenges and obstacles that men do not.
Let’s have a look at the problems which women face and if there are any solutions for these problems.
The biggest problem which women have to face at workplace is gender discrimination. But women are not less successful than men; in fact, statistics show that women are starting businesses at more than twice the rate of all other businesses. Women are resourceful, and able to succeed, despite many challenges. Gender lines are drawn early, and exclusions for women continue throughout adulthood. Not only are women discriminated against in private businesses, but also by the Federal government. Gender bias begins in elementary school continuing on into college. Even though more women hold higher degrees than men, they are still passed over for jobs that go to less-educated and less-qualified males, and they also receive less compensation than men for the same job. There are laws that protect women, and laws that hurt women in the workplace and it is important for women to consider how far we have come in legislative changes – and how far we have to go. These hopes and ideas created a new consciousness and awareness among people, and more rights were given to women in the inclusion of the family law ordinance in Pakistan’s Constitution in 1973. Article 27 of the Fundamental Rights stated that “there should be no discrimination on the basis of race, religion, caste or sex for appointment in the services of Pakistan.”Yet women do face many challenges including discrimination and are often paid less than men for doing the same job. But there are some industries where women are competing and even dominate. Knowing where women are succeeding can help them decide areas to grow your business and identify obstacles in male-dominated industries. Two of the most effective tools in overcoming challenges working women face include networking and finding a mentor. And two of the biggest challenges women face are finding funding and getting government contracts.
