Lately, it irks me every time someone asks me if I am a working mother. I know the term is loosely used to mean women who are mothers and go out to work. But it also implies that all other mothers DONT work. Now that’s plain unfair!

What we really mean by this is mothers who step out to work- those who run businesses, or employed by organisations. And the ones at home also work- but it is seldom or never acknowledged as WORK!

All mothers work. Some work inside and some both inside and outside the house.

This women’s day, let’s start showing the home-makers more compassion and acknowledge their efforts in making and managing a home. Of course this also goes for those who do this as well as step outside to work more!
