Despite being equals, I can’t help but feel like the guardian of the family. Not sure if that’s because I have been raised in a patriarchal society or not, but I do feel like I have a bigger role to play when it comes to protecting my family. My wife is perfectly capable of doing it too and I do understand her capability but still I can’t shake this traditional gender role.

Stereotypes continue to break with the years and in different sectors including education, science and technology. While tradition should have changed years ago, male ego is yet to change. It is still very difficult to break but one day, it will.

To be honest, none come to mind. I never really believed in stereotypical gender roles like a woman’s primary duty revolves around taking care of her home and family, or a man’s primary duty is to financially support the family and so on. I don’t think there are any such roles that I have had difficulty shaking off.

Women are always saying we can do anything that men can do. But men should be saying we can do anything that women can do.
You might be surprised to know that after hearing lots of talk about changing men and women roles on doing household things and bringing cheques home, perceptions of gender roles might not have shifted as much as we think it has. Many people – like above 50% – may believes that traditional ideas of masculinity and femininity no longer apply in today’s society, but still the other remaining believe that women’s primary duty revolves around taking care of their house and the family whereas men’s primary duty is to provide financial support to their family. Another perception that has not changed is that girls and women are generally expected to dress in typically feminine ways and be polite. Men are generally expected to be strong, aggressive and bold. Every society, ethnic group and culture has gender role expectations, but they can be very different from group to group.
