3 Big Myths That Hold Women Back

Wiley
Wiley

Based on Tamara Loehr's book, Balance is B.S., this presentation explores three big myths that hold women back. Balance is B.S. is an unflinching and honest look at the challenges today’s working woman faces in balancing her professional and personal lives. In the United States, women comprise over 40% of household income. Increased gender diversity in the modern business landscape continues to have a positive impact on bottom lines and revenue reports across the economy, and offers significant benefits for ambitious women in the workplace. This increase of women in the workforce does present a serious problem—women are working longer and harder outside of the home, but their workload has not lessened inside of the home. While their career prospects rise, expectations of their family and personal lives remain flat. Women pursue the mythical “work-life” balance, and feel guilty for not reaching it. There is a better way.

That Hold Women Back
3 Big Myths
3 Big Myths
That Hold Women Back
In the 1960s, only 6% of U.S.
households had female
breadwinners, as opposed to roughly
40% today.
Although this is great news, there’s still a long
way to go to close the earnings gap and give
women the opportunity to shine—without feeling
the pressure to have it all.
The first step is to debunk the common myths
that continue to limit and falsely define women in
their professional and personal lives.
3 Big Myths That Hold Women Back
Women are conditioned to value men
according to how much money they make.
So, when a woman is the breadwinner,
she tends to do extra work at home out
of guilt and to reassure her partner that
he’s maintaining his culturally-defined
role. Women have also been programmed
to value themselves according to their
husband’s income, instead of how much
they earn.
Myth #1
Gender dictates our worth.
$
The assumption is that men expect women to earn less and do more at home.
Check in with your partner about how he truly feels, otherwise you’ll risk
burnout and may be living up to an unnecessary standard.
3 Big Myths That Hold Women Back
Women are told they can have it all,
so they put pressure on themselves
to be the perfect employee, the
perfect wife, the perfect mother.
Myth #2
Women can have it all.
But 100% investment in every
area of our lives isn’t possible,
despite what society and our
inner dialogue may tell us.
You can have it all, just not at the same time. You must choose where and
when to invest your energy—and get over feeling anxious about missing
out on the things you’re not focused on right now.
3 Big Myths That Hold Women Back
If we try to compartmentalize our time,
we end up feeling guilty all the time.
When we’re at work, we feel like we’re
neglecting our families. And when
we’re at home, we feel stressed by the
ever-present demands of work.
Myth #3
You can achieve a work-life balance.
Shut down the myth that work-life balance is possible, or even something
you’d want to pursue. However, it is realistic to achieve a more natural
blend of your professional obligations and personal life.
3 Big Myths That Hold Women Back
Balance is B.S.
How to Have a Work. Life. Blend.
To discover how to take control
of your life and stop trying to live
up to unrealistic expectations
that a work-life balance is
possible—or even something you
should try to achieve.
