Question and answer
In most place in south africa gender stereotypes are present and practised said sonke eastern cape project manager patrick godan .do yoy agree
Yes. In most places in South Africa, gender stereotypes are present and practised,? says Sonke Eastern Cape project manager Patrick Godana. [ [ [ ?Men?s and women?s roles in society are divided, and as a result, men are often left out of community initiatives, [ particularly care and the upbringing of children. Very few men spend time with their children and as a result most men can hardly relate to their children.? However, there is a steadily growing number of men who have shed stereotypical gender roles ? only that many of them prefer to do this behind closed doors and with drawn
curtains, says Sonke co-director Dean Peacock: ?It?s not as bad as it seems. More men practise gender equality than we are aware of. But they do it quietly because they fear being ostracised and stigmatised. Gender discrimination is very powerful.? In South Africa, studies show that women still do ten times more care work then men, says Peacock, but he is convinced that this imbalance is gradually shifting towards a more equal approach to caring and rearing. ?It?s not a matter of black and white. Our realities are more complex. There are a few men that have become role models and practice gender equality. Not many, but they are there,? he explains. Men?s involvement in care and child rearing is becoming increasingly important due to the high HIV/Aids related mortality of women in South Africa. Households are without women, children are left without mothers ? and the roles they have played remain unfilled. ?That?s why it?s so critical that men, and especially fathers, get more actively involved,? says Peacock. Since July, Sonke taught men about gender roles in society, encouraged them to take a positive stand against gender-based violence, volunteer for HIV testing, take care of their own and their families? health and play a more constructive role within their communities. ]
