Three Myths About Women Being Primary Breadwinners


It feels good to see that women are being encouraged to work. Today, many women are the primary breadwinners in their families. However, this new development has fuelled too many myths to count. It is time to get rid of all of them.

  1. Myth 1: Women are richer: Women are not richer than men. They are still discriminated and do not earn as much as their male counterparts despite doing the same amount of work. Women at a better position than men may earn more but equal work and equal pay are still not prominent.
  2. Myth 2: Working women are not good mothers: Many assume that working women harm their children because they don’t dedicate time to them and stay away from home most of the time. Studies have proven that kids of working mothers are just as good as kids of stay-at-home mothers.
  3. Myth 3: Men who are not primary breadwinners are good for nothing: This is absolute nonsense. Men don’t always have to fit into the “role” of being primary breadwinners. They can take care of the household if they wish to and that doesn’t make them useless.
