This can be backed up by research on couples and the evidence of the children's pay. It is argued that good children, a clean home and a happy husband all rely on the mother of the family. It could be argued that changes in conjugal roles have happened because of changes in society i.e. women in the work place, but the old fashioned, underlying norms of society seem to still be alive today.
She states that men are happy to contribute to housework and childcare however they would only help with the more ‘pleasurable’ aspects. Ann Oakley’s opinions are supported by Mary Bolton (1983) and Akan Warde and Kevin Hatherington (1993) who state that fewer than 20% of husbands had a major role in childcare and that sex-typing is still major issue in the domestic environment.

So gender inequality also comes from race. By this I mean if there wasn’t any racism towards Black males they would have no need to treat their women the way they do. To take it a step further, Black men and women should not be able to hide behind black victimizations. This is just an excuse for them on why they act of they do. Clarence Thomas used the “black card” throughout the whole trial, and the race card should not have been the only reason why he won.
One point that is brought up in the book is understanding racism. This is an issue because Atticus as a white man is defending Tom Robinson a black man who is accused of raping a white woman named Mayella Violet Ewell, Bob Ewell daughter which as expected their white. If this was to take place in the north no one would really care, but they live in the south where people still believed in segregation from blacks, and for a black man to challenge a white man in court, meant that they would probably lose their case because of prejudice against their race and color.

Keep in mind this is the 1930’s in the south where everyone is highly racist toward blacks so its unheard of a white man having an affair with a black woman so to live the life he wanted to live he had to pretend to be drunk.
Contrary to popular belief lynching was not born purely out of hatred for black people; it was deeply rooted in fear as well. There was an inherit need for white supremacists to control the Negro physically and mentally if they were going to remain superior. There was also a distinct physiological toll watching lynching took on black people. It may not have been happening to someone directly related to them, but they were all intricately connected through the color of their skin. They were painfully aware that it could just as easily be them or a loved one next.
He uses the values and expectations to try to define himself. All that comes from that was him having to fake it to make it, still not finding out who his is as a person. Later on in the story when the narrator chooses to join the Brotherhood, he doing this is because he thinks that he can fight his way to racial equality by doing this. Once he enters in to this he figures out that they just want to use him because he was black. While at the place where this battle royal was going to take place is where some of the most important men in town are "quite tipsy", belligerent and out of control.
However, families that are physically capable of working and taking care of their own should have time limits to live in these public housings. The local governments should implement time limits and job training programs to those receiving these kinds of benefits. Many people believe that welfare promoted child barring out of wedlock because these single mothers had the assurance that the welfare program would assist them. It also promoted the dissolution of families as a larger incentive. According to William Epstein in his book “Welfare in America” “when the number of female headed households increases, so apparently does dependency on welfare” (Epstein 125) Childbearing has long term consequences for the mothers, children, and the welfare system.
We are now seeing what sociologists call the senior-partner/junior-partner structure. Women and mothers are now opting for the choice to work and provide more economic resources for the family. This has changed those expected duties of both men and women in a family scene. A working mother more or less abandons the role of homemaker, to become a “breadwinning” mother, and the father stays his course with his work and provide for the family. Suzanne M. Bianchi in her book Changing Rhythms of American Family Life comments on the effect of mothers working and the time they spend in the home.
(Ravelli and Webber 288) The functionalist approach is “based on the assumption that families exist to perform certain functions for their members” (Bappert 1) and to not only support one another but also the larger social structures. In families, certain social functions are given like love, emotional and economic support and sexual expression. Families are the major support system of these social functions and help a person to grow into a healthy adult. Children learn the values and norms of the society and also learn what their social status is through wealth and inheritance of the family. (Ravelli and Webber, 2013, p. 289) Talcott Parsons argues that ever since industrialization there is no longer produced goods and food needed, now there is specific roles developed for men, women and children.
