"Gender division

Answer :

The statement rightly states that division is not based on biology but on social expectations and stereotypes.


The children, be it boy or girl, grow up together in the same environment, but as they grow older girls are made to learn household chores and boys are taught to work outside and earn money.


Women do household works like cooking, tailoring, washing clothes etc. But when the same works are paid ones men would readily do them. We must have seen chefs of hotels are male; they even work as a tailor.


Hence, it is social norms or stereotypes that anything that is paid could be performed by men.
