How will gender roles metamorphosize within the next 50 to 100 years? Will strict, dichotomous
gender roles become a thing of the past?
This is my off the cuff personal thought. I think we are going through an evolution phase where there is further fusing, melding and intergration of the yin and yang aspects of the self. Obvious evolutionary changes will be evidenced through more (than less) androgeny being expressed in dressing, makeup (or no makeup), sexual preferences, what types of toys to be played with by children, to androgenizing toilet facilities etc..Until the emotions and mind approaches take on a more refined and/or androygenous look and feel.How long will that take? Depends on how quickly we accept or integrate the evolutionary changes needed.
We are shifting from male dominant female secondary to more of an equal, helpmate status.
This will not eliminate women's preferences for working part time or focusing on childcare when they have children. It simply gives more social credence to the minority of women who are ambitious with stay at home husbands or husbands who are equally invested in "the home" to give her more support.
Gender roles will not become a thing of the past since only women can bear children and disproportionately want to raise their own children. Nor will it alter men's tendency to work longer hours because they define themselves more by their actions, their careers, than their relationships.
