Throughout history there have been many changes in the roles of women in society. We’ve progressed from women being regarded as objects for men to own, to the suffragette movement and women’s rights. From stay-at-home mothers to high flying business women. With these changes in rights and status there have been many changes in attitudes towards women.

Louise Garfitt Assess the contribution of Functionalism to our understanding of families and households. In this essay I will be assessing the contributions of Functionalism to our understanding of families and households. Functionalism has made several contributions to our understanding of families and households. Functionalists see the family as an important step in society. For example, George Peter Murdock (1949) argues that the family performs four essential functions to meet the need of society and its members, these are: Stable satisfaction of the sex drive, sex with the same partner will prevent social disruption in the family which will keep the family together.
In this paper the subject is to examine three social movements involving gender to help demonstrate the impact public opinion has on gender issues. Feminism Social Movement Historically, women have been involved in a number of social movements from political actions involving consumer relations to organizing boycotts. The feminism social movements in America have a long history that significantly affected the public opinion on gender issues. In addition, the feminist movement was met with mixed results from its early beginnings up through modern society today. The feminist movement has impacted many areas in society such as reproductive rights, gender-natural language, and family relationships.
Gender roles and the function they serve in our society have been known to be a complex system of statuses, viewpoints, and other elements that bring together a particular type of stratification within our culture today. Talcott Parsons developed a model for this system of stratification that analyzed the popular mid 20th century form of the nuclear family. In his article, “Sex Roles in the American Kinship System,” Parsons lays down his beliefs that the roles we play as male and female are essential to creating a functional and productive kinship. Through setting out a particular structure that will potentially ensure that competition and conflict will be avoided, Parsons asserts that these kinship groups act as functioning units of stratification within our society. This paper aims to clarify the strengths of Parsons’ arguments, such as the functionality and effectiveness of certain systems within our culture, while contrasting the outdated viewpoints which he presents that might not be as applicable in today’s modern times considering the amount of social changes and open opportunities that are now available to both sexes.
Gender is the first label thrust upon a person. Seconds after birth one is categorized immediately as male or female, this label determines our actions, beliefs and roles. Gender stereotyping is a simplistic generalization about the gender attributes, differences, and roles of individuals and groups. The social expectation on a female is to marry and have children. She is to put her family's welfare before her own; be loving, compassionate, caring, nurturing, and sympathetic; while also being sexy and beautiful.

Male and females complement each other anatomically, and as Ryan T. Anderson elaborated, the “biological fact that reproduction depends on a man and a woman,” (Anderson, 2013). If desired, traditional marriages support reproduction of families, children, and communities, whereas same sex marriages are not able to produce offspring for future generations. Without traditional marriages, fundamental building blocks of human civilization and community networks and children would be lost forever. Social and political liberal activists are putting forth arguments to change traditional marriage laws. As same sex marriages are certainly capable of providing loving relationships and family unity.
It is unclear and has been long debated over when the view of women changed. In Helen Zenna Smith’s novel Not So Quiet… she would debate that The Great War was when women’s roles and gender ideologies transformed because she portrays women as more masculine, has women doing men’s jobs, and the questioning of Nationalism. This brings about a new way for men and women to co-exist more equally in European society. Before the First World War gender roles for women were viewed as the house wife and nurture the children to be civilized beings in society. It was expected that they would rear their young.
