According to the research data, it has been noted that women’s empowerment is a potential that accelerates economic growth and further development. We should reflect and discuss how our cultural, traditional and social rules affect women’s leadership so that we can all break that down. There is social, cultural and domestic pressure on women which is the main issue of gender equality. There is a lot of pressure on women from parents, from society and they are forced to be the primary caregiver and caregiver for all family members. Such pressure in society and at home reduces the career ambitions of women compared to men.
According to research, it has been found when chatting with women in higher positions that they cannot share and discuss their role or work from home with family members or husbands. They feel uncomfortable sharing their feelings with them about their senior leadership position. According to the survey of the top 50 women leaders from across Asia, there are three main challenges to the rise of women to leadership in Asia: “Constraints of family life”, “Organizational policies and practices favoring men in relation to women ”and“ Cultural obstacles ”.
Women’s leadership is constrained by various social, cultural and political norms that must be understood and addressed. First of all, we must tackle all the social inequalities that hinder the advancement of women in order to change the situation of women in society and in the nation. I would like to encourage my colleagues and friends gathered here to discuss this issue in their families and communities to explore all the obstacles that hinder the advancement of women in order to strengthen the leadership of women in all fields like men. Men too with women should engage in all social and cultural norms to encourage combined participation and create an equitable environment at home, in the office and in the community.
