Because women are generally assigned reproductive work in most of societies, it is generally expected from them to take care of family members and friends who need helps. This is a normal part of women role and they can keep away from it or refuse to do so. This is the case in many parts of the world, my part of the world included. For the rest of the family and community to feel safe and free to go to their own work, women and girls have to sacrify themselves most of the time, renouncing their dreams, accepting unsecure jobs. It is necessary that their voices be heard, their work and contribution recognised and solutions are found so that there is more equity in the sexual division of work. I would like to do something about this through advocacy, training, concrete solution. This will relieve a lot of women and girls and change the paths of their lives.
