It just talks about the inequalities of genders. In culture feminist theory applies that male culture is very different than female culture. Female culture is more caring nurturing.

In some religions the women would have to indoors at all time and be the cleaning person while the men are out and working for the family. Also that women in some religions would have to sit separately than the men and not sit together. In marriages female and men have very different roles. The women would have to stay home and babysit their kids while the men aren’t. The men would have to go out and provide for everyone in the family. They have different roles in marriages. The women would have to do things like washing dishes and cleaning the house. Men and women have very different roles in marriages.

But they do have women and men that play the same sports like NBA and WNBA. In families women would have to act different when guests come over. The men would do the talking while the women would go make food for the guests. Feminist theory on behavior is that females would have to act differently than men.

They would always have to agree. This shows inequality between women and men. We
