Women in society nowadays by Mercedes López Infante (4º)Nowadays we can see that the role of women in Spanish Society haschanged and could still change.Some years ago women woke up at 7:00 a.m., prepared breakfast for theirchildren, took them to school, did the shopping, and came back home to dohousework until 2:00 p.m., when they picked up their children from school.So they could play with them, go to the park or listen to the radio:“Simplemente María” during the afternoon.Today, women still wake up at 7:00 a.m.; not only do they do the sameactivities but also some others. They prepare lunch before taking theirchildren to school and then they go to work (doctor-nurse, teacher-actress,lawyer-councilor, housekeeper or chef).After work they start with their housework and they take their children todifferent extra-curricular activities. However, their husband, relatives oreven friends lend her a hand and they may pick up the children from theseactivities. It is a relief!If they don’t work in the afternoon, they will probably be studying a courseat a University or on the Internet. Perhaps they will be studying Englishbecause it is in fashion!Don’t forger sports! Spanish women love sports, such as, running, swimming,doing aerobics or cycling, so at 9:00 p.m. or at the weekend they are a goodcomplement to keep fit!Women nowadays are busier than in the past. This is the consequence oftrying to do everything because women think that they should not leaveanything for anyone else to do.Consequently, women are more stressed than in the past and they aresuffering from different diseases which were typical of men, such as,stress, anxiety, heart attack, heart palpitations, insomnia, etc…Women should try to change their lifestyle and to reduce theirresponsibilities which are caused by our society. In many cases a hobbymakes you feel better so women should look for their favourite kind of
hobby in order to find happiness, for example; watching “El secreto delPuente Viejo” on TV !.
