A women should have a good job, but still be the main care taker of the family. A woman should be strong, but not too strong or shes masculine. These stereotypes are not helpful to society and only lead to judgement. Gender roles don’t just effect women, they hurt men too. "Men are Stuck" Emily Alpert Reyes discusses the stereotypes that surround men.
The white Americans also argued that the Chinese decreased the American moral and cultural standards by visiting prostitutes, smoking opium, and gambling. Violence towards this race increased greatly. In 1871, nineteen Chinese were killed in Los Angeles and in 1877 more were killed in San Francisco. This violence shows just how large of an issue this was and how the Chinese was America’s scapegoat for the economic crisis. The Californian government passed certain anti-Chinese legislation such as requiring special licenses for Chinese businesses or preventing naturalization (Chinese Exclusion Act).
Hmong identities are often influenced by three major factors that dictate patriarchal gender roles in Hmong families and communities. The importance of family, marriage, and roles by birth has significant contribution in shaping Hmong cultural expectations for men and women. The generational conflicts between these factors have influenced how men and women are expected to behave, but education has slowly paved the way for gender equality as Hmong has always found a way to change their ways of life in accordance to every nation they have come across (Vang, 2016).

Gender role refers to those behaviors and attitudes that are considered to belong to one sex. Gender role is based on femininity and masculinity that differentiate women and men by giving men some roles and women which results to gender inequality.

Cultural norms of the society have always contributed to the widening of the gender inequality gap. This is because of the belief that one gender is not strong enough to tackle some activities. This has led to limited revenues and inefficient performances due to lack of specific talents. The performance of both genders has also been a factor used to limit one to deliver. Failure to let the other gender show what they are capable of has had effects to the economy.
Liberal feminists argue that women have the same capacity as men for moral reasoning and work habits, but that patriarchy, particularly the sexist division of labor, has historically denied women the opportunity to express and practice this reasoning. These dynamics serve to shove women into the private sphere of the household and to exclude them from full participation in public life. Hence, gender inequality is a hazard not only to the highly capable, talented and deserving women but also to the economy as a whole. Both awareness of the existing gender inequality and implementation of policies that address gender inequities need to be strengthened. Reducing the amount of time women spend on unpaid work is also essential.

Men wished to have a means of lineage, now that they had something substantial worth passing on to their sons, so men became the primary individuals in the home as their strength and mobility in caring for their land was ‘superior’ to that of their female counterparts. Women son became slaves in the home as the men took control of the home situation also, women were degraded and demeaned. She would “become the slave of his lust and a mere instrument for the production of children” (Engels, pp, 120). He claims that inside this due, the man represents the bourgeois while the woman represents the proletariat. Many societies have different forms of this but fundamentally they are all quite similar, the women are subject to men within the marriage and outside the marriage.
