Bachelor Thesis

This thesis revolves around the question if the way we are raising boys to become men in our
Western society is blocking the road to equality between genders. The past decades feminist
movements around Europe have made it possible for women to liberate themselves from the
validation of men. Females are no longer confined to the kitchen space but they are becoming
presidents, practicing kong-fu ánd are taking care of the children. While girls have been growing
out of their stereotypes and steadily made their way into traditionally male domains, a lot of men
are left behind in the same spot. They are left behind and confused about the shapes their roles
have taken. By looking at historical events I try to dissect how it actually came to this division
between the sexes in the first place. What are the stories that made us believe that the sex we’re
born into comes with a certain hardwired behavior or set of roles?
