Why is the role of wife and mother not considered as important
As the role of the Managing Director of a company?
After all, running a home, a family, making sure everything's functioning well and effeciently
Ensuring bills are paid, everything's secure and so much more
Is just like running a business, AND equally as important
So Why is it discounted so much and not valued in society in general?
Why is this role considered menial? It is because whilst in the “wife and mother” role women don’t get paid?
Is it because it is “expected of us” to just be there.......and we are willingly....often too willingly.
Is it because we don’t ask for or expect any recognition or praise?
Whatever the reason, the discounting of the role that women play for most of their adult life means they lose their confidence.
By midlife many women start to believe they can’t achieve their own success.......even though the reality is they have been amazing and successful all their live, just in a role no one gives any credit to.
I think the conversation about the HUGE role women play in society under the title of “Mum and Wife” needs to become MUCH LOUDER.
Midlife Women are ALL brilliant because of the important role we have played, it’s time society started recognising it.
