The time has altered the roles to

Women has a breadwinner and Man has a homemaker.

But this has not come from merely a blink of eyes, many women in history proved themselves as not an ordinary housewife but they can change the world too!

Today also, many women are suppressed by many misogynist and hypocrite thinkers but they have surpassed them by their inventions no one has imagined!

So we will dive into the history where women had broken the glass of fitting in social norms and made their own history:

In the late ‘70s where women weren’t allowed to report crime and vote, at that time Jane Austen wrote 4 remarkable books which made her face in £10 note as a way of marking just what an enormous impact her work still has today. Now, just over 200 years since she died, millions of people carry Jane around in their pockets every single day.

While she was alive, she actually published her books anonymously, so nobody knew her as a writer. It is widely accepted that she never got the credit she deserved until after her death.

These four books were Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, and Emma. Northanger Abbey and Persuasion were published after she died - and they are loved all over the world. There was actually a seventh and final novel, but sadly she never got to complete it.

Jane Austen started putting pen to paper when she was just a teenager and went on to write six major novels that revealed what life was like in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Four of them were released within just four years of each other! That's some seriously rapid writing.

Marie Curie was the first female scientist who won the Nobel prize for her discovery which has contributed to the medical sector. received multiple awards for discovering new chemical elements - polonium and radium.

These discoveries were also really important in developing X-rays, which are vital in hospitals today. It also meant that during World War One, Curie was able to develop a portable X-ray unit that could be used near the battlefront.

Jk rowling, the author of the world's most loved book-- Harry Potter series, which debuted in movies though she struggled publishing book rejected every door-to-door gate of publishers.

Fast forward to 2020, we women work twice harder than men to prove themselves. The orthodoxy thinking of people sitting at higher authorities makes lives harder for women in the corporate world. Women are more imaginative, creative, patient, and hardworking though they are asked in an interview

"What’s your plan for marriage?"

Because in their eyes, women merely leave the company after marriage and kids where their professional life gets a full stop.Why?

Talking about men, most of them prefer money over loyalty towards the company, then also no one questions them this weird thing in the interview.

The policies are the same for both genders but the salary is not! Today also women are struggling to get paid equally to men with the same skills and degrees. Though they take care of both responsibilities: home and work. They struggle to get the same respect, dignity, and freedom as men.

Currently, UK women earn on average £140,000 less than men over their working career

But as the passing generation, time is changing the way women’s equality was pictured.

This rise in numbers has resulted in women entering a much broader range of occupations, from mainly supportive, nurturing roles such as teaching and nursing to every walk of occupational and professional life.

Therefore, women are now found in occupations, industries, and roles previously regarded as the sole prerogative of men.

The economist has argued that increasing the number of women in the workforce can boost a country's GDP by as much as up to 21%, and female entrepreneurs and business owners are on the increase, albeit often in lower revenue-generating businesses

"Evidence indicates that companies with higher numbers of female board members perform better financially."
