Hey Azureen, glad to hear we were both raised by some pretty awesome women! That’s a good question and I’m not sure I even have an answer. I’m assuming single fathers take on both masculine and feminine roles as do single mothers; however, I’m not sure it’s as magnified. I think gender stratification may even leak into that (mothers teaching how to cut the grass or building a swing set (both of which my mother did), while not women’s work, still portrays strength; on the other hand, a father having to teach his daughter about makeup or menstruation are like long-time social no no’s.) I think that as a woman it is my duty to want and work for equality, it just makes sense. Being raised by a strong independent women helped that determination, but I’m sure a single father would have had the same effect. Thanks for your comment!
