Over time, societal norms have shifted significantly, ushering in a change in mindset among people. Today, not only do families prioritize educating their daughters, but they also encourage them to pursue careers in various institutions, both public and private. This shift is exemplified by a young woman in our family who has secured employment abroad.

Recently, during a visit to my relative's home for a wedding celebration, the spotlight was on Nazia, who had landed a job overseas. Amidst the praise showered upon her, I couldn't help but reflect on how this family, where formal education was once limited, now proudly embraces their daughter's academic and professional achievements. Their daughter's success abroad is a testament to her merit and capability.

Reflecting on the past, it's evident that not long ago, educated and career-oriented girls struggled to find suitable marriage proposals. They were often viewed as ambitious or self-centered. However, times have changed. Nowadays, mothers actively seek educated daughters-in-law, especially those with professional careers, as they contribute both to household responsibilities and intellectual enrichment.

Many women express a preference for daughters-in-law who are career-oriented, citing their ability to manage household tasks efficiently and peacefully. In today's era, women not only excel in education but also join the workforce, both before and after marriage, earning respect for their contributions to both family and society.

In our neighborhood, a young woman has ventured to England for employment, supporting her family financially from afar. Economic hardships drive many women to seek employment opportunities, even abroad. The economic landscape compels families to send their daughters overseas for work, as opportunities for advancement are limited domestically. Additionally, the ease of obtaining visas for European countries and the dire economic situation at home contribute to this trend.

Despite the challenges, women's empowerment through education and employment continues to flourish, offering hope for a brighter future where women can thrive both personally and professionally.
