There are 3 general roles that the Guyana women have to juggle on a day to day basis. The first of these roles is known as the reproductive role. This includes their duties to carry children and produce children. They are supposed to keep up with maintenance to ensure quality reproduction. The second of these roles is known as the productive role. This is when the women have to also provide for their family.
If they are not taking care of young children, they need to go out and make some money as well. In some families, the men are the primary care givers for the children and the women are the primary bread winners. Most of the time, the women don’t need to make nearly as much money as the men to keep a balanced home. The third and last of the roles is known as the community role. This includes any work the women do for the community and with other members of the community. This work can include volunteering at a shelter or simply helping others out when they are in need. The women are expected to balance those 3 roles all of the time. The men only need to worry about the productive role most of the time.
There are some needs that are defined by the different genders. These needs are based upon the existing roles they play. There are practical needs and strategic needs for each gender. The practical needs for the women are filled with a wide variety of subjects. There are different training programs available to help increase the amount of money a woman brings into the household. These training programs come in a wide variety from pottery classes to different crafting classes. Another one of the practical needs is an educational course in child caring. Women, who are new to the child world, might not know how to properly care for one. If they are properly educated before they give birth, they will know exactly what to do. This can also help out with the reproductive role women play. The development of fuel efficient stoves helps with the productive role. This gives them less to do in the home front so they can spend more time making money.
The strategic needs for women are meant to challenge the usual roles they have. These needs are there to change some of the defined roles. One of these strategic needs is training women in areas that are not centered on crafts. This means, the women should be trained in some of the same areas that men are trained. This will give them something to do and a way to make more money for the household. A strategic need to help towards the community role is to let women into the legislation committee. This will give women a chance to voice their opinions for the entire community. The productive role is a hard one to tackle. There is a strategic need to pay women the same amount as men for doing the same jobs.
In the past, women have been paid much less simply for being a female. Now they can make the same amount of money as the men for performing the same duties.
There are portions of Guyana that are faced with the concern of domestic violence. There have been many different studies that show almost 2 out of 3 women have been faced with a domestic violence issue at least once. This issue could be because of an angry husband, boyfriend or even a living partner.
Most of these cases involved the male figure being an alcoholic or drug addict. No matter why these cases appeared, domestic violence is the last thing any country wants to deal with. Guyana women have been faced with many different gender roles and needs. They have to not only care for their children, but also the house and provide some sort of income as well.
