    I stopped reading here. What are you doing on Friday night?

    But seriously. A few individuals' financial independence cannot erase thousands of years of historical prejudice and marginalization on the basis of gender.

    Hahahahaha ... I think, to a certain degree, it depends on understanding and communication ... and the "family" structure ...

    Some (totally) dependent women, could as well be the "master" (or "mistress", to be more PC) of the house, and can still state her mind, disagree and also ask for what she wants ... unless, I have mistaken the meaning of the question here ...

    @Ami: personally, totally agree. However, you know, it's an ideal -- the society values house wife role much much less than it values social/financial contribution

    Hahahahaha ... Shu Qi ... dont you suppose that's too general a question to ask? Which specific country or culture (or city) were you referring to, perhaps?

    Some men in China (and other cultures such as India perhaps), I believe, still hold, to a certain extent, the opinion that husbands should provide everything of the households, and women should not work (or at least should not need to), otherwise, this will put a shame to the men's names ... this is especially so for people who has power and wealth ... so, as much as I can never prove you wrong, I am not sure if you can prove me wrong either ...

    Or quoting from an old Hong Kong commercial ... 世事无绝对,只有真情趣 ... nothing is absolute ...
