When it comes to contemporary male gender roles, it is becoming further accepted that men are nurturing and expressive. Unfortunately, there is still a large amount of traditional male gender roles. Men are to be considered as aggressive, rational, and demonstrate instrumental traits, or task-oriented (Cohen and Strong 125). Also, men have been traditionally raised up as dominant over women such that men are to provide for their family, and express dominance over the household.

The struggle for existence is a widely known concept, and a term famously used by Charles Darwin in his writings. The struggle for existence refers to the many organisms on Earth and their constant competition with each other. One of the many ways life struggles with each other is overpopulation.

Wealthy men would commonly become courtiers, diplomats, clergymen or lawyers. The poorer folk would still have plenty of jobs. The men of this society were also allowed to study, go to universities and receive a high education. While these the conditions during the Elizabethan period, today in modern England, the roles of men and women are now completely different and more equal.
This is important because the way a ruler treats his subjects strongly affects how much influence he has over them.
