Changing gender roles
Synonyms: Balancing sex roles
Implementation: The trend in Asia is for many more women to work outside the home; they are educated, they become "breadwinners" and thus gain more respect from their husbands and families. As there is more recognition of women's work, both outside and inside the household, there is a balancing of women's roles outside the home with the man's role inside the home.
