Thus, although, larger sections of girls from all socioeconomic classes are employed outside the home; this neither relieves them from their domestic duties nor does this alter their social position significantly. For hundreds of years, the differences between men and ladies are socially defined and distorted through a lens of sexism during which men assumed superiority over women and maintained it through domination.
