This paper examines how the role of men within the family and society has changed over the past two decades. The paper gives a brief history of men's traditional role, based both on physical stature and societal expectations. The author then examines the impact of the feminist movement and men taking on more traditionally female roles in the workplace and at home. The author acknowledges that some men may not be accepted for accepting non-traditional jobs and roles at home. The author concludes that men need to discover for themselves how best to bridge the gap between traditional expectations and current social acceptance.
