community begins to identify itself by the people in the community share something in common, such us, languages, religions, culture, personal interests, or goal. Most of the qualities expressed earlier can fall under the umbrella term culture. People of the same culture will often speak the same language, follow the same traditions, have the same skin color, and worship under the same religion. These ties foster understanding and trust, and they certainly made a distinct community. But, of all these attributes, I believe that religion and language play the broadest yet influential part in forming a community. To my notion and concept, community is a collectively individual group connected to one another and sharing one attribute. It is also a familiar string used to bring people together to advocate and defend each other in the fight to be able to overcome these strings. Community on the other hand, sees others as one body who have a common sense of belongings that connects us to the many relationships we develop. I think that a lot has changed in terms of gender roles and expectations from ancient times. For instance, gender roles in ancient India, women were cramped and restricted on education which infringes their future goals in life; besides, their rights as well. As the Code of Manu advises, is that "regarding this as the highest dharma of all four classes, husbands being the householders must strive to protect their wives". Wives were always hooked to performing housekeeping task; also, engaged in the collection of wealth, cleanliness, in cooking food for the family and looking after the necessities of the household. This posture and condition of women as stated in the code specifically meant "deserving of worship". In prehistoric times, I believe there was a high rise in gender roles that were mainly men. Women were also promoted less than men. In prehistoric times, men and women were objectively not equal. In this world of ours, gender roles seem to be equal regardless of one's culture, ethnicity, tribe, etc. In the modern world, gender roles are increasingly becoming more equal and indistinct. With the rise of the progressive movement in the early 1900s, women were continually given more rights and more doors opened in traditionally male-dominated fields for women. Today, although western society has remained patriarchal in many respects, I believe that some traditional expectations are also being eroded. In the United States, for example, it is not so uncommon now to find men who are stay-at-home fathers or women who are company executives.
