Unlike in the past where women were less involved in work, modern women are as active as their male counterparts who are involved in all types of jobs from construction, to driving and traveling while working. The situation has changed partly because women are getting education in the same way as men and therefore there is absolutely no reason why they cannot do any kind of job because they are equally getting training and expertise like men. Changes in the family units are making modern women get involved in work unlike in the past where men were part and parcel of a full family unit. The situation is aggravated by cases of divorce, separation, death or an absolute choice by women to stay on their own. With this trend, women are therefore the primary breadwinners and thus have to work to meet ends meet. Since global economies are not doing well, women are seeking employment in order to help the men beat the economic hardships of the family units and help in upgrading the living standard.
