Table of Contents Introduction Prejudice and biased thinking The Idea of "Househusband" Traditional Conventional Duties of Man Joint Families and Nuclear Families Allocation of Duties Changing Roles Changes in the Urban Social Landscape Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction Once upon a time, the role of a woman in society was to be a daughter, wife and mother and take care of the house.
