Response to chapter 10
This chapter spoke to me about gender roles and how the western world would view them. My adult life so far has been challenging because of these archaic western views. I do agree somewhat in keeping with tradition and allowing women to raise children not because it is easier to hand off the work to a female or for any sexist reasons, but because I feel a female would better have the instinct and subconscious knowledge of how to raise a child. Because of my career and my temperament I feel that I would not be an appropriate parent. In terms of society and gender, I feel that nowadays there is a glass ceiling for both genders not because of their sex but because of social status.
