"IN MOST PLACES IN SOUTH AFRICA GENDER STEREOTYPES ARE PRESENT AND PRACTISED",SAID SONKE EASTERN CAPE PROJECT MANAGER PATRICK GODANA. DO YOU AGREE WITH THE ABOVE-MENTIONED STATEMENT? GIVE ARGUMENT FOR OR AGAINST THIS POINT OF VIEW.
Weegy: Men caring for others is a relatively new phenomenon in South Africa and elsewhere on the continent. “In African society, it is seen as culturally incorrect to involve men in care. [ Men are seen as financial providers, while women are [supposed to be] the nurturers of the community,” explains Godana. “Men don’t even take care of their own health. Going to the clinic is regarded as a sign of weakness, of being ‘not man enough’.” Working on the premise that gender equality results in respect for each other which in turn creates a better society for all, Sonke’s work with men aims to change men’s, and women’s, mindsets around the roles people play within their communities. “Care work, for example, is not seen as work that can earn a salary, so men think it’s a waste of time. This shows how difficult it is to be a woman in this country. Their work is considered worthless,” Godana says. That’s why it is “highly unusual” to have men working as caregivers, he further explains, “but the story of the men from Qumbu shows that men can change. It’s a break-through.” Men who were previously unemployed and had little to contribute to their families and communities have now become community leaders. “Initially, people were sceptical about men getting involved in care work, but when they saw the positive impact their involvement had on the community, they quickly changed their attitudes,” Godana adds. ............. ] (More)
