Transcript of Changing roles for men and women, that has influenced educat

hanging roles for men and women, that has influenced education and work and the change towards romantic relationships.
Evolution of Men & Women In Society
Theses periods in time show the progress men and women have made all theses years to change the roles of male and female in society.
0-2500 BC
Urban Industrial
This was the time of pre-history, were couples were emerging, informal marriages and the idea that men completed the more manly tasks.
Males were hunters. They went out and hunted difficult animals, that were hard to capture; because of this, the hunting usually took up the whole day.

Women on the other hand would collect berries. They held a place in society that differed from men.
End of taking up whole day with hunting and the start of farming.
Structures of families that fell along to what we call: monogamy, which is having one partner.
1750's to 1950's
The evolution of romantic relationships. The idea that men bring home the "bacon" , while women stay at home and cook, clean. Families were divided into two categories; you were either in a working class family, or a middle class family.
Middle class family, only men worked, while women stayed home
In a working class family, men and women worked
A child in a working class family would have no choice, but to work as well
Vanier Institute of the Family:
The Vanier Institute of the Family defines family as any combination of two or more persons who are bound together over time by ties of mutual
consent, birth and/or adoption or placement and who, together assume responsibilities for various functions the family holds. (page 6 of text)
Traditional Family
Hierarchy Of A Work Place
History of Education & Children
This fits in nicely in the changing roles of men and women because as time went on, in Canada, the school system made it an expectation for women and men to go to school.
A long Time Ago..
Agricultural families/Pre-industrial
Boys were taught the skills of the father, to one day carry out the job
Girls became mothers
Children were used as laborers
Middle Ages
Boys in wealthy families were sent to all boys Latin schools
Girls were not educated
Edcation in the 20th Century
1910's - 1920's
Child labor was due to children being treated as an adult.
1980's - 1990's
More of a concentration on girls
9.3% of high school students drop out.
This was the rate in 2007.
60% of students
go to post
secondary right

20% delay then go
- while the other 20%
don't even bother going.
Gender Gap
Women;s brain mature faster than boys
Gender stereotypes push harder on females in school systems due to the past involving women in schools systems
Men & women are
constantly changing the traditional male and
female roles.

Ex. The work place,
in the home

Concentration On Women
It wasn't until the 1980's to
the 1990's that they started
to change the workplace.
More and more women
started to work along side men.
Couple Relationships
Travel Back In Time
Men and women have changed the structure of a traditional relationship.
The idea of a man asking out a girl comes from the term courtship.
Definition: Spending time together with the sole purpose of finding someone to marry. Way back when, a man had to court a woman that he wished to marry. This idea was more for the purpose of a career move, rather than a romantic pursuit.
It's a Date!
It wasn't until the 1950's that the term dating was popularized.
The idea of a teenage boy asking the opposite sex to go out to a popular diner to grab some dinner, a milkshake and watch a movie.
Traditional Couple
Men and women have been constantly changing the roles in society. The definition of a couple has long since changed, since the men and women in society have acknowledged the idea of a non traditional couple.
1920's – male centered, organized and paid for activity
Now- either sex can organize and pay for activity
We no longer have a mandatory follow by the rules type of dating system.

A relationship can contain all that, but we do not have to be in a relationship in order to go out on dates and such.
19th Century
Same sex marriage legalization in Canada,2005.
There were people
who were fighting
for the rights of women.
Ex. Feminist.

A feminist is someone who fights for the rights of women. There are different types that fight for different aspects of women's rights, but all want the same thing = equality.
Socialist Feminism:
Cultural Feminism:
Liberal Feminism:
Radical Feminism:
Women in society had been raised on
the idea that you did not go to school because only men did; they were told that they were meant to find a man who was well educated, to be good providers for themselves
& their babies and most importantly, give them status.

Research that show the influence of an old fashioned thinking
Mate Selection Research - Women are twice as likely than men to marry for financial resources
Women are attracted to healthy, intelligent, well educated, hard working and ambitious men.
There was a time where
women absolutely needed me for financial support
According to anthropology & evolutionary psychology,
women are attracted to good providers & men are attracted
to women who appear to be fertile
Although things like an intelligent man or a man who makes good money appeal to women, females have come to a revelation.
The changing roles of men and women are causing the traditional structure of couple relationships and families to change to fit societies needs
We are biologically programmed to
mate with the opposite sex and

This is not necessarily true for people who desire the same sex.
Women in society no longer have to look for a man like that in order to feel financially secure because the workplace has changed it's sexist views.
Women are given the opportunity to get well educated, become intelligent and make themselves financially stable.
Women In The Workplace

Workplaces have long since removed the reserved positions for men and women.
Men could work jobs that years ago, society considered as female jobs.
"Female Jobs" Include:
nurse, administrative assistant,or child care,

Socialists had fought for decades to create a more equal society.
A mixed theoretical and practical approach to achieving women's equality. Socialist feminist theory analyzed the connection between the oppression of women and other oppression in society
How it Relates
Progress of dating, a change in traditional relationships, structure of a family, and women's taste in men based off of their financial needs relations to couple relationships and the expectations of male, female and kids in the house hold has changed. Theses points made under each category linked to their appointed sub headings relate to evolution the roles society has placed on men and women; this had lead to the society we live in
There has been a significant change in the house hold.
The expectations for women, men and children have changed.
How it Relates
The workplace and education system have changed and that's all due to the evolving roles of men and women. The changing roles for men and women has made it possible for girls to get enrolled into post secondary, they are able to receive jobs in the work place. Because of the changing roles there is more equality. Each point made under the sub headings of education and work supports the idea that the role changes influence education and work.
Single fathers and mothers.
Women were more likely to receive custody of children
Now, in recent history, there is more shared custody or an equal fight for the child or children
There is a rising rate of single parents
14 % increase over 30 years of women graduating with post secondary degree
Fertility in technology

Females can obtain jobs that were once seen as strictly a job for a man.
"Male jobs" Include:
Fire fighter, police man, business occupation, doctor, lawyer, etc
The list for male jobs is longer because of the time in history were only men worked.
Known as Artificial Reproductive Technology (ART)
This created the opportunity for women to have a child on their own

ART in the US has more than doubled since ten years ago
Mothers began to work in the 1950's
Emphasizes essential differences between men and women, based on biological differences in reproductive capacity. Cultural feminism attributes to those differences distinctive and superior virtues in women.
Belief that gender differences are part of the essence of females or males, that the differences are not chosen but are part of the nature of woman or man.
Primarily focuses on women's ability to show and maintain their equality through their own actions and choices.
Focuses more on issues like equality in the workplace, in education, in political rights.
Focuses on the hypothesis of patriarchy as a system of power that organizes society into a complex of relationships based on the assertion that male supremacy oppresses women.
This shows how the concept of changing roles has helped women gain a spot in the work place, influencing the work field.

Woman have created a status for themselves

The gender wage gap:
Men are paid more than women
The changing roles for men and women rages from something as a women proposing to a man, or a female prom posing to a guy.

Traditional Couple Structures
Monogamous: meaning having only one partner
Traditional couple referring to man and woman in a relationship
This can be because of the idea that women need a man to support them. Women have adapted this thinking from years and years of believing it was the right way to think and the only
source of stability.
Late 19th century, primary schools were established for boys and girls
The workplace did not fully start to change until the 1980's - 1990's
