Yes, we all know that it is the 21st century and women have been working in office settings for quite some time now. However, there is a big difference between women penetrating the work force and them being accepted into it. Even in developed, open-minded societies, women are not treated or thought of in the same way as their male coworkers.
Women have reached high-posts, CEO and management positions, and have exceeded the accomplishments of men on so many fronts, yet there is still some sort of mental dissonance that causes a prejudice against women in the work place.
Especially in a country like Pakistan where men fear the “Empowered Woman” or the “Educated Women” because if that becomes a norm, how will they keep women oppressed? Of course this may not always be the case, and I’m sure there is a percentage of the population that is absolutely for the acceptance of women in the work place and that women and men be held to the same account and the same principles apply to both.
However, after close observation we have concluded that some women in the work force are given certain labels that deter them from fulfilling their dreams (which is something everyone should have the right to do).
