Mostly because males and older male members were seen to be much more intelligent and experienced, but in general the reason was that age was favored over youth. Of all the relationships the strongest would be between father and son. The son was required to give all respect to his father, even after the father's death. According to Hoobler “ The son was responsible for offering sacrifices to his father’s spirit. Known as filial piety, this duty to father became deeply ingrained in Chinese civilization.” Even though all obedience had to be given to the father, respect for the mother was also expected, but not to the level of the father.
Machismo represents the male gender construct and stands as the leadership positon in which the father protects and provides for the family members, uses just authority and respects the role that both the wife and children play with in the family. Women and children are socialized to be submissive to male authority and the women’s role is clearly taking care of the home, the husband and the children (Coltrace, Park & Adams,

The patriarchy for both Germanies supported men in being the head of their families and “…men had more opportunities to actively participate in the hierarchical distribution and administration of responsibility and power,” (Sieg, 122). Men were the leaders inside and outside their homes. Women saw value in “…men’s relationship to children…and the state ignored and actively marginalized,” (Ferree, 33). This is the traditional role of men that has been performed by men in Germany for
He exemplifies Anglo-Saxon ideals about being a good leader, but has flaws that serve to make him a more realistic character. Hrothgar upholds Anglo-Saxon principles such as the wergild, as he “healed the feud [with Ecgtheow] by paying.” (470-472) He also cares deeply for his people, which he demonstrates by building Heorot in order to share his wealth with the people and show his love for them. Hrothgar also enjoyed success as a warrior and leader, and he “came to believe / [his] enemies had faded from the face of the earth.” (1772-1773) He had fate on his side and gained many followers, and his pride had caused him to believe he was an unbeatable warrior. Yet when a force of evil strikes his hall, he allows Grendel’s terror to last for 12 years. Despite his shortcomings as a leader, Hrothgar is also presented as a good king who loves his people, and his does not lose their loyalty.

Not make too many changes: Microsoft should retain LinkedIn CEO, Jeff Weiner. The leadership consistency is necessary and looks good.

The family itself is collectivistic in that you always can rely on them and count on them for support. This still applies even with the individualistic thought of “pushing the young out of the nest”. Though the family promotes individual independence, it still accepts the collective formation and interaction of the group. Though both do not exist in complete uniformity within a culture they can both exist to some degree. Personally, based on the above example, I think collectivism exists more within individualistic cultures than individualism in collectivistic cultures.
These studies are important for making an understanding and wise king. 2. Kay is Sir Ector’s “proper” son, and Wart is his adopted son. Kay often uses this to make Wart feel inferior and to get what he wants. He was also the leader, albeit an angry and egotistical one.
The society in which we live in has taught us that men should have a certain role in society. The worldly view of a man’s role is that he should provide financially for his family, upholding strength and honor by being the provider and protecter of the home. That men should be strong and independent, show no emotions and provide heroism. I know that men face many types of oppressionmany issues due to how our Western/American society works. Male rape, child custody, likelihood of being accused as pedophiles, sometimes getting the short end of the stick of programs designed for women like The women 's resource center are all examples of the exploitation, oppression and alienation that men face.
