I read an interesting article recently written by a doctor in the US which asks this question. While it is quite clear in my mind that the roles we assign people based on gender are generally relics of a bygone era when humans were still experimenting with fire and tools, she does raise some pertinent questions. Some of them are issues Amy and I have discussed already and are still wondering about. Where does one draw the line between work and family. And not just for women. Men too have important roles to play at home. Being a doctor hardly reduces the responsibility. I hope it at least improves the family's resilience! What do you think?
Here is an article which responds to this question from a slightly different light and talks about the book where Dr. Karen Sibert, the doctor in question, has written a chapter.
