WFH is more like WFA for the corporate woman
Based on the actual experience shared by one of the women in sales:
The clock shows 2:25 am, and I’m still in front of my laptop working on my deadlines to achieve my month’s target but at the same time trying to put my 5-month-old to sleep while making sure she doesn’t wake her sister up. A talent that most women have. Multitalented, that’s what women are usually acknowledged for, why, well they can do all the task together at the same time but are they appreciated?
Each time, I have no clue when I’ll hit the bed, and sleep has been long forgotten after I became a mother, especially a working mother.
A relatability that I find in every corporate woman who works from home but what the world says “you work from home unlike us.” In my earlier days of WFH, I find it odd since I was the only person that stays in front of the laptop while making sure the house chores and errands done. But after the pandemic hit, I can see windows from every household from my balcony, shining bright at hours while I take my coffee break. How the term WFH (Work From Home) changed to WFA (Work From Anywhere) is a result of this pandemic.

They set a curfew for everything but is there one for a corporate woman to get herself out from this routine?
