Mom             : It is not so pressing that you don’t have a job. Your primary goal must be, to get married, Career is secondary. Why stress, if you can depend on your future husband?

Grandmother: At this age and time, no matter the consequences, you must be financially sound and be able to stand on your own feet, instead of depending on any man. A Job is a must, my dear.


If these contrasting dialogues of the main female figures in my life don’t show the difference in their struggles they have experienced and perspective, I do not know what will.
