In finanacial matters, although women are permitted to work outside of the home, their rights on any household matters have always been denied. A woman has to take charge of the kitchen, even if she is wage-earning member of the household and hold down a job outside of the home. The husband will not take charge of kitchen even if he is unemployed and at home all day, as a man who cooks for his family violates the laws of manhood.
