Taking a career break and getting back to work can be extremely strenuous physically and emotionally. Women face this situation quite often, especially in the Indian subcontinent where they form the base of a sound family. There’s no arguing that women find themselves in an emotionally tiring situation when they have to choose between their family and career owing to various circumstances. More than often, working women tend to take a break for their children or family more than the men in the same family. It is very rare to find men compromising on their career to manage the family affairs. Even if they do, they are not treated fairly by the family and the society which discourage them from taking such career decisions.

Discover that with JobsForHer!
