  1. 1. THE WEIGHT OF THE BACKPACKI don’t want the weight of my backpack.I’ve been thinking about the contribution of women in economics and socialdevelopment, in order to improve humanity. You can find many articles, scientificstudies, that prove these claims... but I would like to express out loud and in writing thegreat work we do day to day as women.Women whose faces are anonymous and do not appear in the newspapers, or socialpolicies... and who are contributing day to day to the social, cultural, economicaldevelopment in all countries that are far away.My reflection passes through me. Since I was born I inherited a backpack that is alwayswith me on my back, that is heavy and that, after 50 years, I’m going to take off and I’dlike to inspire more women to do the same, but from an earlier age.I want to get rid of the stress of the obligation to prove that I’m a good woman worker,if not the best. I would like to let my bag go, and get free of the obligation of having tobe a mother, of being the best mother, of being the home economist, the nurse of mychildren, the home cleaner, the manager of family’s stability... All this is up in the airfor others to collect.I don’t want my daughters to have that weight on their shoulders.All these small jobs done day to day (and not seen and recognized) are part of theproduction that has carried out the progress in the human development... and... whatwould happen if all of the women get rid of their burden on their shoulders? Who wouldcollect it? Men maybe? The human progress would most likely continue the same cycle.I would like to see this.Ana María Roca Fernández.3º CAL
