In many prehistoric cultures, women assumed a particular cultural role. In hunter-gatherer societies, women were generally the gatherers of plant foods, small animal foods, fish, and learned to use dairy products, while men hunted meat from large animals.
In more recent history, the gender roles of women have changed greatly. Traditionally, middle-class women were typically involved in domestic tasks emphasizing child care, and did not enter paid employment. For poorer women, especially working class women, this often remained an ideal, as economic necessity compelled them to seek employment outside the home. The occupations that were available to them were, however, lower in prestige and pay than those available to men.
As changes in the labor market for women came about, availability of employment changed from only "dirty", long hour factory jobs to "cleaner", more respectable office jobs where more education was demanded, women's participation in the U.S. labor force rose from 6% in 1900 to 23% in 1923. These shifts in the labor force led to changes in the attitudes of women at work, allowing for the "quiet" revolution which resulted in women becoming more career and education oriented.
Women's movements advocate equality of opportunity with men, and equal rights irrespective of gender. Through a combination of economic changes and the efforts of the feminist movement, in recent decades women in most societies now have access to careers beyond the traditional homemakers .
Many observers, including feminist groups, maintain that women in industry and commerce face glass ceilings.
These changes and struggles are among the foci of the academic field of women's studies..

Good contrast, sharpness, colour and saturation on the fg boat, with the people adding scale. Tfs!

I really like the feel of this picture, a daily-life that grows on you and sort of takes you back to the pre-digital days. Casual and very relaxed, with a great patch of red and blue to catch the eye right upfront. Cool, moody shot. TFS! Have a good day, I'll be seeing you.

Όμορφη στιγμή της καθημερινής ζωής των ψαράδων όπου η γυναίκα παίζει πρωταγωνιστικό ρόλο. Ωραία σύνθεση με ζωντανά έντονα χρώματα και πολύ καλή γωνία λήψης.

Nice detailed picture. TFS.

Yes, the woman is pulling the ropes. Interesting way of capturing daily life scene. I think the role of women in society is a broad topic and it is very difficult to clearly define in the context of countries, cultures and traditions all over the world. But at least they have been given more importance as time goes by.

A funny picture with a moral in the story behind it. It is clear that this is a snapshot, no time to think about all technical aspects, but still a fine TE contribution.
