This weeks reading that I found most interesting was The Price of Motherhood this reading affected me because I never took into account that my mother is so much more than a housewife While my father was working day and night my mother too was working day and night by raising my brothers and me Society has made me believe that the one who works outside of the home and who brings financial stability is the one with the real work Whereas in reality both are equally doing the same amount of work the only difference is that one gets paid and the other does not really get any material reward The most powerful part about this text was that I was able to see how I was a-part of neglecting and disregarding what women do to keep a family together It was shocking to read that I was free riding off of my own mother who offered her labour in return for no compensation I believe the text affected me the way it did because I never thought that as a woman I would ever take part in something that makes a status of a woman any lesser than it already is Its heartbreaking to think that for all these years I was a-part of ignoring my own mothers efforts Never had I thought that my mother too was working twenty-four hours for her family She just like my father was just as hardworking if anything more hardworking than him The article definitely has changed the way I define work I now believe that women that nurture their families should not be valued any less Similar to the analogy of soldiers women too do serve the country they make the future of a nation and they give us values morals and care Thus they should too be rewarded just like veterans are rewarded to avoid free riding
