Mothers Who Work Outside the Home-外出工作的母亲们
E。mployed women with infant childr。en often face a。 dilemma of whether to keep working or t。o quit to take care of their infants. Though the fact that married women work outside。 the home has bec。ome a s。ocia。l trend, people still expect mothers to stay ho。me until their children are two。 or three year。s old. But, in my opinion, it's unfair and impractical to deprive mot。hers of their right to keep working only for the reason of child-care.
From the view-point of feminism, women also need a se。nse of achievement as men do. Employed women often find it difficult to give。 up the chance of self-fulfillment and go back home to play the traditi。ona。l role. Since the age of confining women to the household has passed, we should not neglec。t mothers' desire to seek further accompli。shments outside the home.
Bes。ides, t。aking c。are of children is both parents' responsibility rather than only mothers', since children belong to both father an。d mother. Thus, it's unreaso。nable to ask mothers to give。 up their jobs for child-care which is also fathers' duty.
Practically spe。aking。, working mothers can help improve family。 finances. Though there will be extra expenses for child-care service at the same time, employed mothers can ensur。e a steady income to help support the family. Therefore, mothe。rs' working outs。ide is advantageous to the family, especially to those low-income ones.
In brief, to expect m。others to put child-care before everything is not feasible in today's society. Only if fathers and mot。hers cooperate can the pro。blem of child-care be solved.
