A woman needs a place besides home where she belongs and where she has contact with people. A job gives structure to a woman’s life, gets her out of the house regularly. Most people want a time when they will have a flexible schedule and can sign up for the art class or Spanish lessons that they always wanted to take, but few people actually do it without an agenda (Whitely 24). The stay-at-home wife and mother usually become more tired, because a nonstructural life encourages a never-ending work. A woman needs to grow, explore, learn and believe in herself, and this is all achieved in an environment where the person can communicate with other people. Flexible working situations, mentoring programs, and technology are environments available today that support a balance between work and personal life. (Shusman 161) When a person is able to explore life outside the house by working and making time to learn, he becomes spiritually strong, and this is something a women needs (Kovalevsky 53). A woman needs to be tough to handle family life and heavy decision making. As women become clearer and develop a sense of self, they become more capable of meaningful relationship with others. Work becomes more than something one does to earn money; it is what we need to do with our life. It means making a contribution which complements the other aspects of our life. “It is not a profit-and power-oriented; instead, it takes its meaning from creativity, bonding, humaneness, and service.” (Wilson 117) A woman who reaches this stage of growth also develops a relationship with the universe. She begins to have and understanding of how it all fits together and a feeling that life has true meaning (Blodgett 15). Not only does a woman benefit, but through work women manifest many of their strengths which are very beneficial to the workplace.
