The Good Mother Project an initiative by Her Zindagi
Women face various social stigmas and challenges as mothers, which can hinder their personal and professional growth. The persistent societal expectation that women should prioritize their role as mothers above all else is something which every mother has faced and is still facing in their life. This often leads to judgments and criticisms if a woman chooses to pursue her career or personal aspirations alongside motherhood. The pressure to conform to traditional gender roles can limit women's choices and opportunities.
Furthermore, mothers often face scrutiny and criticism regarding their parenting decisions. These judgments can undermine a mother's confidence and create unnecessary stress and guilt.Balancing the demands of motherhood with professional responsibilities becomes a juggling act that requires immense determination and resilience.
Addressing social stigma and challenges faced by women as mothers requires societal changes. It involves promoting gender equality, challenging traditional stereotypes, providing supportive policies, and fostering a more inclusive and understanding environment for mothers to thrive in their various roles.
