3. Low pay scale: Sometimes, women face a low pay or unequal payment structure in their professional life. The employer thinks that women have less ability to do at work than men. They also think that women cannot take difficult work or opportunities. Even though, if the women prove the efficiency related to the work. They are not providing an equal salary.

4. Work and personal life imbalance: Another difficulty is an imbalance between the personal  and work life. Differentiating personal  and work life is very hard for women.
