At times, it is impossible for these women to manage their household duties. Sometimes, women are forced to work because their male counterparts do not earn sufficient incomes to make end meet. A lot of working mothers, thus, face the difficulties of looking after their young ones. However, most working class women prefer not to work at home because being a homemaker is a herculean task that requires a lot of skill and patience. Since women feel incapable of looking after their children,... ... middle of paper ... ...iders.
Commonly women are assumed to be housewives to “work” in their home kitchen and care for her children. House wives believe that no matter how arduous housework actually proves to be, they do not feel themselves to be at work. [xix] Housework is not a paid job, it is more of a responsibility burdened upon a woman. In today’s society these views have altered, women now have more job opportunities and it is normal for a woman to be employed. Although women do work, they are still seen as submissive because of the unequal treatment and salary they are given compared to men.
In Rita Dove’s “Daystar,” Dove describes an unnamed mother’s repetitive and exhausting daily routine to reflect the unsatisfying role that women play in society. The woman in the poem fulfills her duties as a mother by performing her chores and watching after her children, but at the end of the day, feels empty. Going through the same motions and actions day after day are not enough to fulfill the woman’s wants or needs anymore and she finds herself dreaming of a place other than the one she currently occupies. Dove switches tones frequently to express the emotions that the woman experiences throughout her day and uses disheartening words to mirror the mother’s displeasure with her life. Diction is an integral part of the poem because Dove manipulates certain words to elicit feelings of compassion from the reader.

The 1800’s were a very challenging and demeaning time for women. I found part of an article that directly ties into the control that men had over their wife: The 1800’s was a time when most women were dominated by men. Women were relegated to their duties at home and raising their families. Wives were the property of their husbands; and some were subjected to horrific treatment without any reprimand from the law. Women could not make any financial decisions, they couldn’t own property and they could not vote.
It was only after 1870 that education became more like it is today, but the subjects taught were often needlework and cookery, effectively the girls were being taught to be the traditional wives. Most middle class girls would be taught at home, usually by a governess, again to be wives. Therefore, women were not allowed to enter any form of further education, due to the fact that men believed that they wouldn't need extra schooling to become wives. Due to this lack of schooling, women could not get any sort of decent work. Many were domestic servants, or did textiles as in school.
Working moms and stay at home moms will frequently make judgmental and harsh statements and will not associate with each other. Masters calls these two groups “alienated groups”(Masters). While most moms in the United States hold some sort of part time job, stay at home moms tend to have the loudest voice in society. These women particularly get called out on being quick to judge the choices of working moms. Although many people have accepted the idea of equality for women and their rights, they still put pressure and guilt on these mothers who are found in the workfield ().
Females are quickly becoming a major factor in the business world. Families are seeing that one salary per household is simply not enough to maintain a comfortable lifestyle. Just a few decades ago, women were left at home raising children and left to depend on a spouse's income to satisfy their needs and wants. This summary will review a brief history of women in the workplace, discuss the current World and U.S. status on female workers and their rights, and offer examples of resources that can be used to not only educate women, but to empower them as well. Companies should embrace this growing trend, as it will not disappear, in order to achieve maximum societal welfare.

Brady lists tasks after tasks which make it seems as being a wife is physically and mentally impossible, Brady then finishes her short story with a cry of desperation , "My God, who wouldn't want a wife?"
