Recent engagement I had with communities revealed that traditional gender roles sometimes work in favour of young girls. Parents argued that it assist them to have time with their girls and it keeps them at home safe from unplanned pregnancy.

With traditional gender roles, there are social norms and expected behaviour. That happens in all cultures. No judgment here. I just don't think anybody should be limited to one view of the world, or gender. As life is better when we learn from and help each other out on this journey.

Es interesante que las comunidades logren en la crianza de sus hijas roles equitativos al interior de la dinámica familiar. Sin embrago es una tarea compleja por los diversos contextos socio-culturales que tenemos en nuestras Regiones. Por ejemplo en la zona andina de mí país persiste el enfoque patriarcal en las familias, otorgándole al hombre un rol de poder y subordinación sobre los integrantes.
Muchas veces esto se perpetua y las hijas e hijos continúa estos estilos de crianza.
