    Islam in its essence is a very open-minded religion and yet it keeps the ground realities into perspective. Islam has a benchmark teaching of “not putting extra strain on a soul what it can not bear”. An amazing statement, which embodies the whole dilemma, we face today. I believe from above examples every one of those three women had to take this decision of how much burden she is ready to take. While Maggie Thatcher was lucky to have a faithful husband and twins, Madeline Albright had to cope with the insecure husband and three daughters birth and bringing them up. Both of these women decided to take the burden they thought was necessary.
