A woman in her higher side of the 20's had been facing some problems at her work place and she decided to resign. Instead of doing the predictable new job search she took to upgrading her skills. She enrolled herself into a management course in one of the most reputed institutions in the country. This is a usual process in the country.

Against all odds she took admission in India to upgrade her skills and learn more about her. She knew she had a lot more in her than what she was utilizing. She took this management course not just to upgrade her skills but also to increase her own potentials.

There has been a survey about the recent changing trends in a woman's life. Recently women have looked ahead in life and have broken free from the various family pressures. They are no longer the same old housewives.
Taking up higher studies only indicates that women can go ahead in every way they want. It is always difficult to study abroad. It is even more difficult for woman to study when she is married and has kids. She has the responsibility of her child and taking care of her family. It tears a woman apart to leave her child miles away and study.
In this modern era woman are only showing what they are capable of doing. They are bound by family responsibilities. They have the psychological pressure of degrading relations with her husband and her in laws. They may become a joke for the family later on. At the moment they are leading the way in the unknown to discover new sides to her.
Previously the family pressures were so strong that a woman could not even think of going out to doing a job. The success of a woman was always suppressed and a woman was never allowed to go up the economic ladder. They were treated like people who were born to give birth and take care of the family in the long run. She always had the pressure of keeping her spouse happy and everyone in the family connected.
At present the family pressures no longer exist rather the family supports the woman into going ahead with the studies. The in laws and the husband take up the responsibility of the child to take care that the wife can concentrate on her studies. Later the woman becomes an inspiration to the next generations in the family. She gathers the power and knowledge to guide the next generations of her family very well. This is the main reason that women are being encouraged to take up higher education and succeed in life.
