Becoming a boy or a girl has a significant role in one’s identity. What other kind of behavior is acceptable for girls and boys, and what boys and girls may and cannot do, is taught to us by the society in which we grow up. We are conditioned to believe that these things are the same everywhere. We’ll also look at how the various roles that boys and girls are allocated prepare them for their future roles as men and women. We shall discover that men and women are valued differently in most communities. Women’s roles and work are typically undervalued in comparison to men’s roles and efforts.

Lives of Domestic Workers

A domestic worker is someone who works at home. Cleaning and household maintenance, as well as cooking, laundry, and ironing, as well as care for children and elderly dependents and other household tasks, are all services provided by domestic workers.

Some domestic workers reside in the same house as their boss. In other circumstances, servants whose work included sophisticated management chores in large houses were highly respected for their contribution and skill. Domestic labor, on either hand, is often difficult and undervalued, despite the fact that it is necessary. Domestic workers’ lives are filled with difficulty. They put in a lot of time and effort in their employer’s home. They sweep and clean, wash clothes and dishes, prepare various foods, and care for young children and the elderly. Their day normally starts at five o’clock in the morning and concludes at twelve o’clock at night. They don’t really sit for even a moment during this time.

Women make up the majority of domestic employees. Even young boys and girls are sometimes hired to perform all of these tasks. Despite their hard work, their bosses frequently show them little appreciation. They frequently criticize them, even for little faults. In terms of pay, they are extremely undervalued. The reason for this is that household work has little value.

She has no choice but to face the trials since she has no other choice. However, she, like her boss, wants to be respected.
