If there is a financial requirement in the family, women should work and contribute to the needs of the family. However, if the need is because of social compulsions and not financial, then it's not needed that every woman should work. In the last 40-50 years this idea has come, that you are a real woman, only if you earn. This is borrowed from a man's mind and is not needed. Woman should see how to enhance the feminine. Sadhguru shares his experience of his mother, and how she made a difference in his family.

Is it not true that everyone is disabled in some or the other aspect of life? Sadhguru says that it is inappropriate for the society to brand anyone. Even people labeled as normal, are they not breaking their brains in some way - calling it as stress or anxiety? We should never call ourselves or others as disabled - just look at each one as unique. No person can claim to have a perfect body or a perfect mind. Regardless of how we turn out physically, nobody should decide how we live within ourselves. If we look at life like that, then nobody is disabled.
Virender Sehwag: Namaskaram Sadhguru! I want to know the truth about our Indian caste system. How can we ensure more inclusiveness and equality? Sadhguru: In ancient times, by maintaining a caste system, skills were transmitted from generation to generation. This was needed for the society to function. Today, the transfer of skill does not happen through family - so the caste system has no relevance anymore. Also, some people have started thinking they are superior to others - and terrible things have been done to a few people. Just abolishing the caste system won't work; but there is a way out - through state provided social security.
Every human being has different capabilities. Today, we don't use the term 'handicapped', and refer them as special children, or special people. Sadhguru says - "So, “handicap” is a very relative term. Physical and mental activity are always on different scales for people. But the one thing that society can do is to, as far as possible, create equal opportunities". Equality by itself is a foolish idea. We can not and should not make everyone equal.
