Women looking for work

Saturday, March 09, 2019

THE general perception is that most women look for a husband, and when they get one, they settle down. Parents also work hard in this regard, to get them married off. A large number of women think they have arrived when they get a husband. For a large number of women, the problem ends when they get married. It is mostly they cannot get a suitable husband, that they remain unmarried. And if the family is not rich enough to support them, their problem begins. There are thousands of parents who do not have the means to look after them. The parents fix a marriageable age and if before this, the daughters do not marry, the parents expect them to look after themselves. In a state of unemployment, the girls begin to look for work. They desperately look for training. This training period is most difficult for them. They can get some chance if they are educated. Some of them - thousands of them - reach up to high school. Even this limited education stands them in good stead.

We have evidence of women trying to get some job. It is not easy. Apart from other things, they have to contest with other women.

In one case as many as 900 women applied for ST bus driver posts. It is not known what has happened. Anyone who gets through would be a lucky woman. The large number of

women applicants for a tough job show how desperate women are, how they are in a struggle for existence. Naturally, they are prepared to do anything for a living.

Maybe women must start helping themselves. What is necessary is to open up access to training, giving them some doles, providing information etc. There could be other practical down-to-earth assistance. There must be thousands of women looking desperately for help.
