The Experts: Women’s Giving to Their Families Seen & Interpreted as Matter-of-Fact
The ex-wife of the singer, Wang rebutted on a post two days ago, described how she was being treated as unequal to him in the family, that if women are housewife who don’t make an extra paycheck, women would’ve worked even harder, for less gains, it’d gained the agreements of all women around. The C.E.O. of Women’s New Knowledge Foundation, Chuang told, that the society still believes, that women as the roles of caretakers of the family, the primary person who do the household chores. And once there’s a divorce on the way, the men and women would not stand on equal basis to one another; the manager of the counseling center of Soochow University, Yao told, that Lee has a higher education degree, good backgrounds, but she’s still the voiceless, the sacrificed party in her marriage.
Chuang told, that no matter if it’s a full-time housewife, a working woman, the stereotypical belief of the society is still that women are in charge of household chores, caretaking, that the workhours of women are a lot longer than the males’, but, nobody viewed household chores as a pay job, and women’s working in the home had been taken for granted, and this underestimated the stress of the party doing all the work at home.
Chuang told, that there are many ways to transfer the assets away from the individual legally in Taiwan, or through the company, and the laws for alimony and child support don’t work in favor of women, and so, the foundation is pushing forth for an amendment on the civil front, this was what Lee mentioned as the cost of her opportunities of work away from the home, because the full-time housewives not only put in the physical labor, and they’d lost the competitive edges of the workforces, and, as both men and women entered into marriage for many years, the men keep on advancing in the promotions, the wives, due to taking care of the families, the children, couldn’t establish her self in society, as they split up, the starting line is never, equal for men and women.
Some believes, due to the higher education that Lee received, her socioeconomic status being higher up, it’d allowed her to voice out the inequality, Chuang said, that even as the better-educated women couldn’t change the structures of patriarchal society, compared to women in the past, women now are better able to, describe the unequal treatments they were receiving, but from her post, it’s clear to see, that Lee is still, having, a very hard time deciding on what she is to do.
Yao believed, that Lee put up with the bad behaviors of Wang in the marriage for EIGHT years, with her background, her higher education degrees, she still got tied down by the society’s expectations of her role as a wife, a mother, a woman, that she should settle down, and be the great woman who’s backing her husband up, giving him support, and, no matter how able-bodied, how strong the backgrounds of women are, we’re still, voiceless, and sacrificed, in our, marriages.
And so, this still showed, how the traditional gender roles had, SCREWED us ALL, and, because of these, traditional gender roles that’s been, etched into our, socialization, our ways of life, we’d, internalized these messed up values that tried putting us women, into, OUR, “places”, and we get trapped, and, can’t get out.
