Men are still the predominant breadwinners, though, in recent years, more women are earning the mantle in their families. Women breadwinners are more commonplace. Nowadays, they are more likely to have more education, a career and make more than men.
When there are dual earners in the household, sharing responsibilities should be the norm. Even if they are breadwinners, women are looked upon to take the lead in housework and caregiving. It is a gender norm ripe for change.
Women typically seek jobs with flexibility, have to work part-time or shorter work hours compared to men. Remote working may be an excellent option with greater flexibility and increased employer support during the pandemic.
