Gender norms are still the norm

Gender+norms+are+still+the+norm

From a young age, we are taught to believe that men and women have different roles in society. In fact, some cultures believe that men are “superior” and should be the breadwinners of the family, while women should stay at home to take care of the children. Such gender norms, although shifting, can still be found in households today. Comic by Jaime Tumbaga.
