‘Why pregnant women are asked to not do work’ Zara raises concern


Tv actress Zara Noor Abbas believes that working women shouldn’t be asked to stay away from work after announcing their pregnancy.

In this regard, Zara reached out to his followers on social media and posted a query related to it to know what people think about it.

“Why are working women asked to take steps back when they announce pregnancy in the corporate/work world and why are men never questioned for their credibility or their enthusiasm about work when they plan a family?” she asked.

Paying attention to this seriously raised concern by the actor, people shared their point of view on this matter.

“Because women are belittled at every step of their life and they are not equal to men,” a user wrote. “Women are not always belittled. But they are repeatedly questioned for their choices in life. Why is that question not the standard for men in the corporate world? And also, men and women are not equal. They have their own place and women have their own. Plus, women give birth to another human being. Men can’t do that,” Zara came up with an explanatory reply.

Another user said, “Probably because some men don’t want to take equal responsibility that comes with parenting”. Zara had a reply for this user as well, “Doesn’t that depend on the person? We shouldn’t be too quick to judge the men. I am sure they want to spend quality and most of their time with their children,” she replied.

“Because men make money for the family and women during pregnancy would not be able to work,” another user shared his two cents. “Fun fact. Did you know Gal Gadot was five months pregnant when she was shooting for Wonder Woman? No, you didn’t,” Zara explained with an example.

Last but not the least, a user said it’s risky for women to work during the pregnancy period. Zara said, “Doing desk jobs is risky? Being active is perhaps highly suggested by doctors. And how does carrying another life stop or become a problem for your brainstorming?” she highlighted.
