Social Role Theory

All the gender perceptions are determined by the society. Society tries to imbue people with role patterns which teach them how to act properly. “Baby girls wear pink, boys wear blue” is one of the most known expositions. Men are expected to be the head of the family, be the financier of his family’s all needs, unemotional and analytical. Women are considered firstly as mothers, they are expected to give childcare and be able to deal with house affairs; they are more sensitive and less analytical then men.

As the consequences of the social gender roles, women cannot improve themselves by the way they wanted. Moreover, even if they join working class, house keeping and child caring is still their primary job to do; they have to work much more then men to be as successful as men. Even in the most civilized countries, the inequality between genders can be easily seen.
