Women choosing traditional roles and careers

Monday, June 24, 2019

Hi everyone! Thanks again to all those of you who subscribed to my new Youtube channel and took the time to send me a message. I hear your video requests and they are noted! :)

As briefly mentioned, my posts and videos will continue to touch on the topics of homemaking, women's issues and everyday life (vlog-style). If you haven't had the chance to check out the previous videos, I would love it if you did so!


Today, I thought I'd touch on the issue of traditionally female life paths (roles), and careers. 

In a world that glorifies women in stereotypically masculine jobs and tends to forget the rest, I believe that it's time to re-write the narrative. Women choosing traditional careers and paths are often looked-down upon for being weak-willed and unintelligent. If it serves as any proof for the way in which society views traditional feminine roles, we can take a look at the wages of workers in "caregiving" fields (control your variables to include those with a 4 year degree, if you want extra accuracy). 

Regardless of where you stand on the political spectrum (we can agree issues surrounding women have sadly become an identity politics game), I think that we can all agree that women should be celebrated in whichever role they choose, so long as they are working hard, expressing their talents and seeking fulfillment. 

Without getting into more of the details, I would encourage you to watch the video. I made it rather short for easy listening. 

*Please note, this video is not meant to tear down women that do not choose to follow a traditionally feminine life path or career. The intent is to draw attention to those women marginalized for doing so.
