How can a homemaker be independent?


“When a man is educated, only a man is educated; but when a woman is educated, a generation is educated.” We all have heard this famous proverb and it is very well said. But there are many woman who are unaware of their potential, unaware of what wonders they can do, what super powers they have and what great heights they can reach if given a right platform.

Women should be provided a platform

We often talk or hear about women empowerment but it needs to get spread from house to house so that the talents emerge out from the bars and become independent. A homemaker is not just meant for the home, if her potential get wings then she can be on the peak of success.


What is Women Empowerment?

We often come across the term Women Empowerment but what is it? How can it help the women? So let me throw light on this term — Women Empowerment. Women Empowerment is the awareness which you spread among women so that they can identify their hidden talent and can utilize it for a good cause. There are many women who are well experienced in a variety of jobs but they are not aware how their skills can bring success to them. So, women empowerment is the medium through which a spark of “yes, you can do it” is provided to the women who lack self confidence so that the spark burst out as a lava in the heart of every woman in the form of “yes, I can do it”. When one woman gets this empowerment, she tries to motivate others of her type and this process continues and today we see the results of women empowerment in almost every sector.

Who is a homemaker?

Nice question and I feel really proud to answer it. Homemaker, as the name suggests that a person who make your house a real house to happily live in, is a homemaker. I have seen my mom and she is a wonderful homemaker. So every mother, grandmother, sister or wife is an amazing homemaker who makes you feel heavenly in your home. Some people look down on homemaker that they only reside in home and don’t know anything more than household jobs. They say that the job of a homemaker is really simple. But let me tell you friends that it is a job of 365 days without rest, without any salary and making the house a paradise for her family members.

The only salary she receives is the smile on the faces of everyone. Just imagine a house without a homemaker. It will be worser than hell. So now you decide whether the job is easy or hard? Yes, she resides in the home but she knows how to experiment with spices, whether there is dust in any corner or not, how to manage the family budget along with giving all the joy to her kids. In one word, a homemaker is an all-rounder — a chef, a doctor, a tailor, a teacher, an accountant and many more. She is a multi-tasker and does every task with utmost precision. If this multi tasker homemaker gets the appropriate platform then think the opportunities waiting for her. So now you understood why I took so much pride to answer this question.

Why a homemaker needs to be independent?

A bird looks nice flying in the sky, not inside the bars of a cage. A flower spreads the fragrance in the garden, not after plucking it up. Similar is the case with a homemaker. When she has the powers of a superwoman, then why to curb her skills inside the house? Let her skills get a platform where she can showcase the best of herself which will make her an inspiration for others to admire.
