In this article, the writer discusses evolving gender roles within Canadian society. The writer looks at changes in the labour force in Canada and notes the increasing numbers of women. The writer argues that while men are no longer the sole breadwinners, they do retain significant economic dominance in Canadian households as in the labour force as a whole.
From the Paper:"The statement that in Canadian society men are no longer considered the "sole breadwinners" nor women only fit for "domesticity" is an assertion that, upon initial review, appears incontrovertible. After all, the rise of the dual-income family and the increasing prominence of women in the paid labour force is a widely recognized phenomenon in Canada as in most western countries. This being said, however, upon closer review it may be argued that the situation in terms of gender roles in the Canadian economy and labour force is not quite as clear as this statement would suggest."
