Learning is an endless process and by working, we expand our horizons and explore more about the world and people. As humans, we are curious and have a thirst for knowledge and by working we learn new things every day.
You are no longer known as the daughter, sister or mother of someone, you are known by your own name, which gives a confidence boost on its own. When you work, you interact with different people who form an impression about you based on your work and personality.
When you meet different people and learn to deal with different issues, you learn about your own strengths and weaknesses, this way you use your skills appropriately in the society. When you do this, there is a boost in your confidence and self-esteem.
When you are self-sufficient and have an identity of your own, there is a boost in your confidence, which contributes to your personality development. You learn to deal with people, you learn to deal with issues outside your own home and family and overall you become stronger.
When you work, you feel like you are important because you are a productive member of this society, even when you are tired and exhausted, a part of you would be still happy. When you grow old, you don't have to be dependent on anyone for money. You have your own network of friends and hence there would be happiness in your life.
When you are working, you have control not only over your finances but also over your own life. You don't have to be dependent on anyone, you can control what happens in your life to a large extent.

Women are strong and independent by nature, but we have been suppressed from many decades. Women are now slowly coming out and taking over the world, but it's still not a very high number. For this to change, women have to work in different fields so that they can represent the female population.
