LOH contest #104 || The changes in women's world from 20 years ago

This is my first time participating in #ladiesofhives contest, I must say it is comforting finding a group where women can express themselves.

This week's topic is a bit emotional, am thankful to @joanstewart for giving women in their different age range to participate. And I selected the one that is best suited to my age.

20 years ago, what do you remember as a woman -vs- what is happening in the world today. One memory and what the change has been whether positive or negative.

This topic is making me emotional because a lot has happened in the last 20 years in women's world.

Change simply means the process by which something becomes different. Nothing is stable or stagnant in life, everything is bound to change. Life itself is not stagnant we don't know what may happen in the next few years, the only thing constant in life is change.

The last 20 years as seen a significant change in women's world. Years ago in my country, It is impossible for a woman to take a decision without the knowledge of her husband, she can't go anywhere without getting permission from her husband not even to greet her parents. Also, a woman cannot inherit properties from her parents because she is considered not as a family after all she is expected to leave her father's house and get married. It is believed that she belongs to her husband since she will be bearing his name and giving any sort of property to her, is like giving properties to an outsider.
Women hardly have any career and even those that have to do majorly work as a teacher, traders, Secretary, nurses and all those jobs that have been labelled women's work.

Presently a lot has changed in women's world in my society. Women no longer need to obtain permission just to do something. Women now have the right to inherit properties from their parents and maintain sole ownership of their properties. Women have also gone beyond those female-labelled jobs to jobs that are male-labelled.

One thing that has stuck with me in this change is women living in the tech world. 20 years ago you hardly see a woman in the tech world. Tech was basically labelled men's work but that has change. The percentage of tech women in the world has increased sufficiently, you see women occupying a high position in the tech world. Women are now developers, web designers and programmers. Women have also enter into the crptocurrency world, women now know about trading and things pertaining to cryptocurrency. This has been a good positive effect in women's world. One negative effect is that women now have less time for their family. There are times when they miss an important event in their children's or spouses' lives, this sometimes affect families and may lead to separation.

I enjoy writing about this LOH contest so much and I will be inviting @negro-girl and @sommylove to participate in the ladiesofhives contest

Wow, it's good that there has been an evolution in the customs of your country. It is so, every day women have shown to have many competences to be in branches that before were exclusive for men. There is still a long way to go, it is always good to celebrate progress and make gender inequality visible when we come across it.

Yes it is. Women have carve a name for themselves in those jobs termed for me and it makes my heart glad. You are right gender equality still seems so far, though we are getting closer but we are not at that level yet

Woman have moved forward into more equal opportunity in workforce, many thoroughly enjoy being able to share knowledge freely within many roles in life.

Inheriting the future not only in assets, knowledge in homes and institutions, woman have come on along a journey with much change for the better.

Exactly, women now work in field that were thought not to be for them. I am happy to see the change, and I believe that greater change is still coming to a women world because life is evolving everyday.

It is great to see women do more things. There is a long way to go. Look at Iran for example, many middle Eastern countries the rights of women are backwards. But progress when it happens is great, like with your country Annie!

I do agree that women have seen a significant level of growth and acceptance even in male-dominated spaces. This is a welcomed development. There should be no limit to what the female child can do. Our world would be a lot better if male and female have equal opportunity to grow.

Yes, people's perspectives to women in these jobs is changing and a beautiful change. Women are no longer discriminated at. Female children now have opportunities that their mothers never had, my hope is that the change will keep on getting better

I think it's really about finding out what works for any particular family? Each situation is different...

Yes, what works for each family is different. And how each spouse responds to a situation is also different.

Thank you for reading my post.

You have said it all geelocks...
Now women are making paths and names for themselves in the industry... which for me it's very positive and enlighten.

Those days are far gone behind us and anyone stuck there might be tagged weird and outdated.... thanks for submitting this in #dreemport.
