What Is The Woman's Role???


Soo before you get bent out of shape here lets visit this topic together shall we(lol).It's a topic that apparently holds a lot weight in America. Yeah I say America, being that in some countries, a womans' opinion or contribution simply bears no value in the household. The topic we visit is just what is the woman's role in society? To be clear let me add that, being an African American male,  its possible for me to have a bias perspective on this topic. Soo bear with me..

This issue is very delicate and sensitive, but far from untouchable.  In the urban community I think its safe to say that the woman's role has changed or even evolved over the last 20+ years...Old fashion stories had the woman's role as the house manager and the nourisher, while the man was said to be the breadwinner and the backbone of the family. Well now a days there has been a revamped script added to the story, The woman now wears the pants and the makeup, she's breadwinning and still finding time to nourish.  Was she forced into this role? Or has the emergence of equality strained her relationships with men? leaving her hard to get along with..

So tough to call, but very debatable. Some men share their feeling as to say, he has watched his women take life by the horns, excepting failure at no cost, relentless in the pursuit of education and financial stability. He feels that this journey has hardened, and given her a cocky attitude upon completion, decreasing his value as a leader. Many women share their feelings to say, that this same man has become complacent in life, for him to feel this way, he obviously lacks security, and simply is not strong enough to handle a women of her caliber. She adds that strength is her greatest attribute, and she will not settle for the selfish and controlling ways that some men possess.


Soo in this battle, we find that a good number women today are highly successful but yet still single. We find a good number of men,  stating they want a strong ambitious woman, but for whatever reason the two struggle to co exist. We not saying anybody is right or wrong here, we wanna know what's your position on the topic. Also we would like to conclude that we appreciate all the hard work and sacrifice women put into  to society and the family. No matter what role all women are appreciated... and yes Beautiful..

  6. I think you had many valid points....for most women like myself you dont have a choice but to play both roles....I believe women have evolved..in some areas not because we wanted to but because we did not have a choice...in other words...we (women) still want a man to take care of us and be the head of the household..after all it is biblical just a side note....but if a man decides to walk out or a relationship just does not work women are left to deal with the aftermath...which means keeping a house and taking care of the kids....its interesting because I believe there was a special on BET about black men dating white women and the reason behind it....it was said that black men do not find minority women feminine enough...because of the roles they have taken on....leaving us in a category as having attitudes and not knowing how to keep a man....the truth is we have become more independent and less willing to tolerate nonsense...which in some cases provide a problem for men....at the end of the day we need men to be real men and real fathers...men need to step up and stop blaming fathers for not being there and learn how to be successful in that area for themselves..

  7. wow this is getting good, i wish these type of discussions would get more attention i actually think this generation of men are trying to take care of their kids and be a good boyfriend or husband. i think women put up with alotta and we try to make up for the stressful attitudes we may present conclusion is that we stay conscious and continue to meet in the middle

  8. Women where forced into the role of being both of the parents I don’t think any women woke up and said I want to be the mother and play the part as the father because daddy is not around. It is hard now to even find a,male that is on the same stable career path as a woman that wants to be the provider . Its even harder if you are a single woman with kids. The woman could still be taking care of home with a good job, but the man may find the factor a bit to much..and may just want the woman and not the children so he makes no real comments. And they wonder why Tyler Perry wrote Diary of a mad black woman...

  9. I won't get into what I think vs what everyone else thinks but Taraji Henson and Morris Chestnut played in a movie called "Not Easily Broken".

    This movie outlines how black men and women deal with power struggles within the household. As a young man growing up without my father around AT ALL, I had to learn much from my mother. But one "oldhead" told me once..."the main reason black men don't succeed is because we are too scared of marriage and family". I am not preaching at all because I deal with these concepts, but its important to consider wisdom from people who've been here and done it already!

    Thanks for the intereresting post! Keep up the good work fellas!

  12. Alot of good comments on this subject. I would love to have a round table discussion on this...well I guess that's what this is, sorta(lol). I agree with a number of posts but I'm extremely interested in WHY black men are scared of marriage and family? Where did that concept/feeling originate? If that's the case where does that leave the woman who just bore this mans child and more importantly the child?? It's a vicious cycle that MUST be broken. Because we end up with the woman taking on roles and responsibilities of a man.
