Gender Roles

Men and women's roles have changed a great deal in the last hundred years. In this film we look at the relations between the sexes in Denmark today, both at work and at home. There is a brief historical account, and a review of statutory rights and obligations.   Women are now at work, and men have started taking a more active part in housework and childcare.At work there is a tendency away from the traditional division into `men's´ and `women's´ jobs. We now have male nursery teachers and female metalworkers.Denmark insists on equal opportunities for men and women, and gives them the same statutory rights and obligations.
