CRACKING THROUGH THE GLASS CEILING IN A MAN DOMINATED WORLD IS DIFFICULT, PRESENTS MANY CHALLENGES, REQUIRING MANY SACRIFICES TO MADE, AND FAMILY AND SOCIETY RELATED PRESSURES TO BE ABSORBED. FORGET A DEVELOPING COUNTRY LIKE INDIA, MORE PROGRESSIVE COUNTRIES IN THE WEST ALSO FACE THE SAME ISSUE. ACCORDING TO THE GLASS CEILING COMMISSION IN THE UNITED STATES, ABOUT 95 TO 97 PER CENT OF THE SENIOR MANAGERIAL POSTS IN COUNTRY’S LARGEST CORPORATIONS ARE HELD BY MEN. WE SALUTE THESE WOMEN WHO HAVE BEATEN ALL THE ODDS AND HAVE EMERGED CREAM OF THE CROP IN THEIR ORGANIZATIONS. TAKE A BOW LADIES!

    આ તો બધી મોટી મોટી પોસ્ટ ઉપરની સ્ત્રીઓના થોડાજ ફોટાઓ છે, જ્યારે હજી ઘણા બાકી છે, પરંતુ નાની સ્ત્રીઓ જે ફેમીલી બીઝનેસ સંભાળે છે તથા નાની-મોટી અનેક ઓફીસ, પોલીટીક્સમાં કે અનેક ઉદ્યોગઘરમાં ઉચ્ચ હોદ્દા પર છે, જે બતાવે છે કે, સ્ત્રીઓ કોઈ પણ કામ કરવાને પુરુષો જેટલી જ સક્ષમતા અને કાબેલિયત ધરાવે છે, પુરુષપ્રધાન સમાજમાં પણ સ્ત્રીઓ પોતાની જગા જાતે બનાવી શકે છે…..

    God has given everythings to man and woman. In old days life was easy and simple. At that time woman’s were taking care of house and children. Just imagine condition of anybody’s house without woman.Nowadays time has changed. Woman got the chance to show their ability and they have performed well.

    સુંદર સંકલન

    આજના યુગમાં પણ સ્ત્રી-પુરુષના મત ભેદ જોવા મળે જ છે. અલબત સ્ત્રીએ દરેક ક્ષેત્રમાં પુરુષની સાથે જંપલાવ્યું છે અને પ્રગતિ કરી છે જેમ કે, સરકારી કંપની, પ્રાઈવેટ કંપની, બીઝનેસ, પ્રોફેસનલ પ્રેકટીસ.
