Even this challenging situation would ease
In villages, I see ladies only cooking in the houses. But in towns and cities, there is a big change. Daytime all may be eating in their office canteens. Many are employing some maids for all the household works. I feel the parents should train their children both in household works as well as outside works so that tomorrow if any need comes they need not worry. These days parents are treating sons and daughters in the same way. of course, there may be a few exemptions.

Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
Do her father and brothers perform household chores instead of her mother and herself?
If yes, then I would congratulate her to change this patriarchal system in her home.
As we know this is our ages-long tradition to run a happy family home that a man is responsible for earning money for his family and a woman has the responsibility to perform household chores. This is the ground reality of our social system. And as a matter of fact, it can't be changed. However, if a woman does a job and earns money for her family then it is the duty of the man also to perform some household chores. I don't like that a woman should be given double responsibility.
Changing this is difficult and in order to change this system, women should first change nodding their heads and accepting all the household burden as hers. Then she can expect some help from men or she will always be taken for granted
Being patriarchal does not mean that children should start being discriminated against from childhood. I am happy to say that this system is somewhat different in my family, both my nephew and niece help in some household work.
The same thing has often been said by the author that, the duty of the male of the family is to arrange the income and the duty of the woman is to manage the family and the children. You are also aware of modernity where times are changing and husband and wife served both the family and office responsibilities. Ancient traditions are always honorable, but a change in them according to time is the rule of the world. People still do not use mobiles with the same keypad that their forefathers may use, today is the time of android phones and approximately everyone is using them. When there is nothing wrong with adopting modernity, then why can't we adopt some changes related to the responsibilities of work in the family?
