Women's Voice
"If you ask for equal rights then accept equal responsibility as well. It’s a tough world and no one would really make way for anyone."
“In my first few years, I really had to show and PROVE MYSELF to be capable….
There always may be a sense of jealousy and resentment if a female gets a promotion, but I never felt like there were any obstacles in my way. Women have to show their DEDICATION, HARD WORK and TALENT and BE MORE ASSERTIVE about having their work represent who they are.”
“There are certain roadblocks that only females have to face during their careers. When I got married, the question was, if I will continue the Job or not and despite of my assurance that I will pursue career after marriage, it took me good one year to prove the fact.”
“What you get most to hear when it comes to equal opportunity employer that if males sit late so should females. In our society sitting late in offices is not encouraged, but still females strive to build a career and for that matter they are told to make several sacrifices.”
