According to the textbook of Intercultural Competence Gender Egalitarianism is the extent to which a culture minimizes the differences in gender expectations for men versus women Lustig Koester p128 The equality between men and women can vary among many countries Some countries may consider men and women to be equal while other countries dont consider men and women equal at all No matter the circumstance of equality most cultures expectations are normal and natural The aspect of culture I chose to explore was the status of women It will be discovered how the status of women is portrayed amongst the cultures of the United States India and Costa RicaIn the United States the status of women is pretty equal when compared to men However I think some males feel they should have more power over females because of the masculine trait they are supposed to portray Women can hold jobs outside of the home and even hold positions higher up than men For example at my old job a woman held the position of President and CEO which shows to prove that women can hold higher positions than men Even though women hold jobs outside of the home it is still a norm for women to attend to all the housework However that norm is starting to fade away Men are starting to help out more because their spouse doesnt have as much time since they work tooIn present day the issue females seem to struggle with the most is their financial earnings Womens salaries still tend to be smaller than mens salaries However it is not uncommon for American families to have both the man and woman equally contributing to the household income This means both dad and mom are working full-time jobs while raising their family Women do not retain their maiden names when they marry
