What are men and women expected to behave like in terms of social norms?

Some examples:

- Traditionally men are seen as the 'breadwinner'; hyper masculine
- Women seen as sensitive, housewife and frail

Etc etc things on those line

I think it's asking you to consider things like: girls are expected to not stay out late, to be quiet and tidy, to be considerate, and to maybe help out around the house.

Boys may be expected to be more proactive, to play outside, to be a "boy" or a "lad", to be rough and tough, to get messy and even to sleep with lots of girls as this is given masculine status.

Just a few ideas to get you started.

Okay I have done the first year of sociology, found it hard but you'll get the hang of it. so the question is:

Getting you thinking: Gender Roles and social norms

Well this refers to the first part of your topic, like others have stated above, mention what you think a typical male/ women gender role should be. here are a few things:

Men are considered to be the breadwinner, they do not participate in domestic chores- house chores, they stay out while women are considered the well to be the housewife, to cook and clean, socialising the children teaching them the norms and values of life/ society, they are not allowed to work or do anything that does not suit their biological role. As parson - very important person argues they women have expressive roles while men have breadwinner role. but times have changed, men have gone from being assertive (traditional) to being more modern and marginalised.

Social norms- being able to scream, cry , be polite, e.t.c.they are different within religions, cast, generations and change over time.


Please do use these broken , remebred of my qucik think notes as these will help you. key words above will help you. good luck.....:flower2:

Females are socialised into a culture of dependency and typically take the role of a nurturer, it has been embedded in Them to choose 'gender specific' subjects such as Nursing, Teaching, health and social care etc

However, Males are socialised into a culture in which they are going to be the 'breadwinner' and in charge of the family

Females are discouraged to take certain subjects
As there are a lack of females in curriculum text books such as maths and science, majority are males
There's a lot you can talk about
If you still need help I can help you
