The general perception is that the girls/daughters tend to imitate the mothers by dressing up like them and trying to do household chores, as carried out by their mothers. Boys/ Sons, on the other hand, imitate the way their fathers speak or behave, generally showing an authoritative personality. Childcare sector comprises of the day care institutes that have gained an increasing importance almost all over the world. The young children, usually before they begin their kindergarten schooling, are kept at the day care centers while their parents remain busy with their professional lives. The children at these centers are kept under the supervision of caretakers, mostly women.
Light and darkness are often used by playwrights to symbolize the human condition. These associations are based off of human experience in which they exist. Many literatures often use the concept of light and darkness to portray the characters’ state of awareness. In ‘A Doll’s House’, Ibsen examines the role of light and dark through the human condition of his characters. He does this by examining the struggle of his characters within the play’s contextual setting of 19th century Norway - using light and darkness to play off the themes of unreliability of appearances and the sacrificial role of women in this patriarchal society.
While women were at home taking care of the children and aiding to crops, the men were the ones that went out to hunt and gather for their families. Men were the protectors of their families and this same idea has continued throughout the years. We grow up learning the roles of our parents, and those traits are what follow us into adulthood. Being apart of this society it is hard not to be affected by the culture and stigma associated with being a certain gender. Like discrimination when it comes to race, gender bias is highly common in our community.
(Bledsoe; 1976:377). A Kpelle man's power is also dependent on his children. They can work for him, and thereby generate income. However, a man's children are only legally his if they are from marriage. Considering this, it appears that for man's social position it is crucial to marry and thus women hold some power in negotiating marriage
A male human also faces a lot of obstacles in his life like he has to manage his family as well as his work. There are lot of obstacle for him at work as in he has to keep his boos happy in order to survive in the company. Also a female human being also faces a lot of obstacles in her life like she has to manage her home as well as her official duty and also has to face taunts given to them by the male dominated society. I think both men and women should face equal obstacles in their life and also socially speaking like the housework should be equally divided among both men and women as they both are equal partners and have to equally face their obstacles not just women do all the work. This was about how men and women face obstacles in their life also friends also face obstacles in their life too like in the poem also “So I spoke to him politely, for he was huge and high, and begged that he would move a bit and let me travel by.
We are living in a new generation, where the gender roles are switching everyday and becoming more equal. It is a tough world out there for women but they are saying no, we can do what men do and we can do it better. Women go to work everyday and are a huge part of the labor force. While men stay home to raise their children, we are switching the gender roles that have been around for centuries. In the past this would not even be a topic of discussion, such as in the 50’s when women were told their job was to just stay home with the kids and cook and clean all day, having the food on the table when the father got home.
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. Monogamy developed in more detail, primarily for women, after the development of private property and lineage. All this so the man can be certain that he is the father of a certain child of a certain woman. The idealised image of a women in the 19th and 20th century was as stay at home mother, who cooked, cleaned, care for the children and fawned over her husband, who went out to work daily. Things have gradually been changing since the late 20th century, women have been gaining more rights as the century carries on.
Domestic labour – housewives Women have always been allocated as economically dependent on men. They have also been destined to domestic work, either at staying home, being a housewife or either by doing a job that has to do with domestic work. In addition, even employers have the same views of work for women and when it comes to employability, they tend to hire men for jobs that have nothing to do with domestic work. However, the real fact is that a woman who has a salary can manage her life in a better way than a woman who is dependent on a man. The real problem about women, who are actually in domestic work, is that this type of labour is often undervalued and this is shown by the fact that when they are housewives and perform a type
Whether they were considered the property of their fathers, brothers, uncles and/or eventually husbands, females were looked at differently. Due to the high impact that history has on us, gender inequality is developed unconsciously. The females are expected to spend most of their days doing free work at home, cleaning, taking care of the children, driving them around and cooking. Yet they still
With brain power being the requisite skill in this knowledge era, rather than endurance or physical strength, the women workers seem to flood into every industry on par with men. But this has indeed become a tough challenge for women as they have to perform a lot of duties in home and office as well. As working women get married, they have additional responsibilities and when they become mothers, they have to manage the primary care of children and extended family and are thus, under greater pressure to continue on a career path. Working mothers of today fulfill family responsibilities and also try to remain fully involved in their careers coping up with the competing demands of their multiple roles. The caring responsibilities that working mothers have lays a heavy stress on them when it is combined with their professional duties.
