Conservative gender roles

Related: conservative - gender - identity - stereotype


Many cultures have attitudes towards women which place them at a considerable disadvantage to men.

In some societies, women's lives are effectively controlled by their husband, family or tribe. In the most extreme forms of these views, women can be victims of honor killings if they do not conform, or even do not appear to conform, to these constraints, or women can be literally regarded as property.

Milder version of these attitudes are still prevalent to some degree in most cultures in the world, where the stereotype is still that of a nuclear family consisting of a married couple where the man goes out to work and earns money, and the woman stays at home and raises the children. This stereotype is increasingly not the common case in most wealthy countries, with both families with dual incomes and single mothers being very common. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conservative_gender_roles [Jun 2005]
