Business tycoon Anand Mahindra highlighted something every important with his recent tweet.
He said that working women have it tougher than working men because of family responsibilities.
Talking about the topic, he posted:
I’ve been helping to baby-sit my year old grandson this past week & it’s brought home to me the stark reality of this image. I salute every working woman & acknowledge that their successes have required a much greater amount of effort than their male counterparts pic.twitter.com/2EJjDcK1BR— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) February 5, 2019
As sad as it sounds, this is the reality for most working women.
As a woman, you start apologising for your professional success without even realising that you are.
And more often than not, it results in overcompensation.
You want to take care of everything at home, because that's your 'responsibility'. Or so you are taught.
And while a lot of us are trying to fight this dilemma, we end up falling in the trap.
I hope all corporate companies and HR depts recruiting women can keep this n mind ..but in reality picture is totally the opposite, even if it’s a woman evaluating u..— Prabhjot (@prabhjotkvarma1) February 5, 2019

Being a working mom with two kids and climbing corporate ladder I can relate to your tweet so much. It requires teaching perseverance and hard work by parents in early age and later having a supportive husband and family— Preeti Jain (@P_J12) February 6, 2019

Thanks for the acknowledgment Mr Mahindra. I am sure most know this but I appreciate the one who pause, take notice and acknowledge. But honestly it’s really a ‘team work’ where u need a supporting partner to make everything work smoothly— Swati Khandelwal (@SwatiKJain) February 5, 2019
A serious need to internalize this, for the polity as a whole— n jayakumar (@jakesprime) February 6, 2019
