Socety as a whole is constantly changing and evolving, a hundred years ago., It was thought a woman's place was in the home. Now of course someone holding that opinion today would be considered to be holding an out dated viewpoint(s). What was expected by a man has change as well in those years. Both men and women are equally capabale of doing jobs that at one time where considered more gender specific. And true whilst some jobs are more dominated by one gender than the other, is that more down to scoeity as a whole hasn't quite fully embraced that concept.
Surely we should have the best person for the job regardless of gender.
